Tara Esperanza & Brooks Fletcher: Intimate Perspectives


Mercury 20 Gallery announces a new series of shows in the gallery’s back room office space MERCURY 20 BACK ROOM with new work every six weeks. The series commences with INTIMATE PERSPECTIVES from Tara Esperanza and Brooks Fletcher

Tara Esperanza presents paintings from her series Las Ventanas a México. Having traveled extensively in her husband’s homeland for many years, Esperanza has been transformed by Mexico’s rhythms, its language has softened her soul and its colors warmed her heart. Here she paints the distinctive beauty of the Mexican landscape and its inspiring cultural traditions of art, family, and music.
Las Ventanas a México 

Brooks Fletcher presents photographs from The Intimate Vessel, his ongoing series of city street views that examines the nature of photographs and the medium’s capacity to challenge attitude and perception. Made from color reversal film, each 4 x 5-inch transparency is placed in a hand-built frame designed to backlight and present the lived-experience authentically, from the film itself. These photographs offer a truthfulness that may otherwise go unnoticed and extend an alternate approach toward photography in an age of digital reproduction.
