Mimi Moylan’s Meditative Contrasts
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Condesa, British Columbia artist Mimi Moylan in Plurality of Expression. The exhibition will open on January 21, 2017 and run through February 10, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, January 26 from 6-8 PM.
Mimi Moylan uses acrylic paint and woodburning techniques to build sharp, graphic images ranging from mandalas to landscapes. Often using a range of blues, from serene to vibrant, overlaid with solid black, Moylan’s high contrast images play with space and focus. The colorful textured areas serve as the backdrops for fine darker patterns. This trend continues with wood burned designs, which similarly balance dark, flat graphic imagery with rough, organic texture. This balance of intricate detail and a natural quality runs through all of Moylan’s work. Each painting has large, broad brush and palette knife strokes, creating a multi-toned sea or sky on which the designs sit. Moylan faithfully represents elephants and natural scenes, but adds motiefs to each design to create images balanced between realism and geometric design. Each image ranges from shining white to deep cerulean blue and even to deep velvety black.
Moylan lives and works in British Columbia, where she also practices as a yoga instructor. Meditation informs the galaxy element in her paintings. Similarly, sacred geometry feeds into the patterns Moylan puts into her work.

About the Exhibition
The Many Worlds in "Plurality of Expression"
Agora Gallery is pleased to present Plurality of Expression, a new group exhibition highlighting the incredible diversity of visual language that the human mind is capable of creating. Seven artists are featured, among them painters, sculptors, photographers, and interdisciplinary artists. The group hails from a wide range of places including Peru, Romania, and Canada, and their far-flung origins influence their work in unexpected ways. Instead of any one artist creating pieces in a traditional or characteristic style of their home, this group represents the ever-increasing globalization of our world. Each artist shows knowledge of old and new techniques, and local and foreign aesthetics. Influences are cherished, but they are also interrogated and pushed further. Information travels quickly in the art world.
The strength of Plurality of Expression lies in just how different its featured artists are. One painter creates meticulously realistic tableaux of utterly fantastic landscapes - a road floating over an endless sky, or an egg that has sprouted its own feather. Another artist creates digital photographs exploring the nature of femininity through wondrously tactile liquids and fabrics. Yet another makes jewel-toned paintings of flat, serpentine figures, and another makes infinitely layered visions of the cosmos.
