FINE ARTIST AIMEE SICURO

FEATURED IN SOLO EXHIBITION FREE ADMISSION

OPENING RECEPTION MARCH 6th 2008, 6-9 PM


New York, N.Y. January, 2008 - “It's been haunting me” laughs Aimee about her exhibition titled: Free Admission. “And when something is haunting me, I do something about it.”

Ms. Sicuro's exhibit consists of ten paintings, all set in the 1920's, united by a carnival theme. “Life is a performance," states Sicuro, "to me it's always been about Act I, Act II, and I am certainly a traveling show, constantly expected to perform.”

The construction of the exhibit is uncomplicated, revealing how we present ourselves to the world when we are battling each other and ourselves. Sicuro says, "It's all about finding that balance when you are about to lose it. To ensure one comes out on top."

Free Admission is full of symbolism, describing the intricacies in Ms. Sicuro's life at the moment; whether figuratively taming lions, or harmful thoughts, in Taming Your Thoughts or the unveiling of the mask (revealing her true self to the world), in Mindful Nesting. Aimee is trying to find balance in her life, one whimsical drawing at a time.

The magic of Aimee's work is such that everyone can relate to it. It will strike a chord with the younger people, who are still trying to figure out what they are trying to do and will be equally effective with older people, who may suddenly realize that they are in an entirely different spot from the one they'd intended originally. For Aimee, her work is her savior, which helps her “make peace with that ongoing circus in her head”.

Free Admission is the culmination of her five years in New York City. It is Ms. Sicuro's way of saying good-bye to the city, which has inspired her in more than one way. For now, as Aimee says, “it is time to take the traveling show somewhere else.”



Free Admission runs from March 1st until March 22nd, 2008 at 43 8th Avenue Gallery
