Inner Beasts

Even in the Garden
Ceres Gallery is pleased to present Even in the Garden and Inner Beasts, new paintings by Virginia Mallon.  A timely exhibit which explores myths and bible stories about women’s role in the world. The exhibition touches upon fictional events portrayed as reality, representing the loss of feminine power and the birth of the patriarchy. It launches from antiquity and reaches forward to the present to examine how antiquated ideology still rules our contemporary world. Inner Beasts contemplates how women are groomed from a very early age to conform, as so aptly communicated in the Barbie movie, “You have to be thin, but not too thin…you have to stay pretty for men, but not so pretty that you tempt them too much or that you threaten other women…never get old, never be rude, never show off, never be selfish…”  It is no wonder that the term masking was coined. We mask to deflect attention and to conform to societal pressures. This series looks at what is under the mask, the authentic, yet hidden, inner beasts. Mallon is an artist working in paint, photography, and mixed media. Her work contemplates religious, historic, and mythological women, personal histories, and the psychological undercurrents of contemporary society.  For more information, please visit www.VirginiaMallon.com .
Ceres Gallery is a feminist, not-for-profit, alternative space in New York City, dedicated to the promotion of contemporary women in the arts. Ceres serves as a supportive base for a diversity of artistic and political views. Over the years Ceres has encouraged not only artists but writers, musicians, dancers, poets and storytellers to perform in the gallery and take risks with their work that might not be possible in a commercial setting. The members of Ceres Gallery believe the arts provide an important social service – that art has the power to educate, enhance, and enrich the quality and depth of people’s lives.
