Mighty Tanaka Presents Shifting Perspectives, a solo show by Alexandra Pacula
Opens Friday, May 11th, 6pm – 9pm
The Manhattan Bridge, standing like a proud cobalt giant, stretching its outreached arms to connect two landscapes and bring people together.  With feet of stone resting peacefully in the muddy waters of the East River, the steel structure radiates with an electric individuality that beams across boroughs.  This symbolic artery of New York City possesses an astute flair of personality that serves as an inspiration and muse to the people who are lucky enough to be touched by its magic.  Mighty Tanaka is proud to bring you our next show, Shifting Perspectives, a solo exhibition featuring the artwork of Alexandra Pacula, as she interprets the vibrant nuances of this world recognized landmark.
Shifting Perspectives exemplifies Alexandra Pacula’s trademark style of painting dubbed “Visual Intoxication”.  The abstract yet photo realist nature of her work provides dynamic movement to an otherwise stationary object, allowing it to come to life and move freely around the canvas.   A virtual vortex of light and motion envelops the artwork, which tempts the eye and draws in the viewer.
With a confident hand, Alexandra Pacula demonstrates the expansive versatility of her technique through the inspirational power of her subject matter.  Her ability to manipulate oil paint into a highly complex and mind bending experience solidifies the various Shifting Perspectives of her artwork.
