FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

This presentation of paintings, drawings, sculpture, photographs and video takes its cue from the 1978 John Carpenter classic Eyes of Laura Mars, starring Faye Dunaway and Tommy Lee Jones. In the film, Dunaway plays glamorous New York fashion photographer Laura Mars who can miraculously (and for no explicable reason) see through the eyes of a serial killer as he commits his crimes. She and Tommy Lee Jones, who plays the no-nonsense, tough guy policeman, team up to find out who this serial killer is. The theme of seeing through another's eyes is central to much of the work in this presentation, as are themes of Hollywood, fashion, urban glamour and crime.

Participating Artists: Guerra de la Paz, Justine Reyes, Juan Doe, Scott Taylor, John Jacobsmyere, Chris Rush, Jerry Kearns, Jeff Bechtel, Adela Liebowitz, Noah Becker, Kate Clark, Christy Singleton, Mombert, Jillian McDonald, Fritz Chestnut, Michelle Handleman, Nell Stewart

about the artist: Guerra de la Paz is the composite name that represents the creative team efforts of Cuban born artists, Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz. What began as an idea for two individual artists to share a working studio in Miami's Little Haiti, has become an ongoing collaboration that has evolved into constant experimentation.

about the artist: Justine Reyes lives and works in New York. Reyes' work revolves around issues of identity, history and time; and our relationship to these themes in a post 9/11world. Using photography and installation, she examines family, the idea of leaving and returning home, and the longing to hold on to things that are ephemeral and transitory in nature.

about the artist: Juan Doe an artist that strains the boundary between painting, propaganda, polemics, and philosophical discourse in art. He encapsulated a new age aesthetic through his command of the graphic process but with the masterful execution of a painter. His images are non-negotiable, they cannot be interpreted or postponed; they exist now, for the oxygen of the viewers eyes.A recipient in 2007 and 2008 of an individual grant in visual arts from the Bronx Council of the Arts, he is represented in the Bronx Museum (New York).

about the gallery: People go to Jack the Pelican Presents to see something the likes of which you have never seen before. The gallery, founded in 2002, discovers and nurtures local Brooklyn artists and others from around the world, who have not yet had the chance to expose their work in New York. One- or two-person shows lasting five weeks allow viewers to come to a fuller understanding of each artist’s unique vision.
