Marissa Paternoster - Works on Paper

Prepare to be thrust into a world of pain.  The subtle, casual works of Marissa Paternoster manage to harbor every insecurity the prototypical young American has to offer.  Her work deals with archetypical memories, confessionals, the mysteries of parents, and the faults of families.  Unnerving as the material may be, they are audacious testaments to honesty, truth, and transparency.  While the work is loaded, the jokingly informal production of pieces may assist the viewer in alleviating the so-called “world of pain” Marissa seeks to construct.  So, prepare to suffer – and get ready to enjoy it.   Shown right: " Smart- Funny- Talented"
