Merry Karnowsky Gallery is proud to present “East of Eden,” a solo exhibition by Mercedes Helnwein, hosted by actor Jason Lee. Known for her obsession with pencil and paper, Helnwein’s drawings are shockingly detailed, almost photographic at first glance, and vary from rich, saturated colors to her trademark black pencil. Perhaps more importantly, her work is known for the unusual balance of humor and suspense; the small, impeccably lit dramas play out on the paper as eerie mysteries begging for clues. Video music by Ali Helnwein.

Exhibition Dates: November 14 – December 19, 2009
