Buckle up, art aficionados, because the OOA Gallery has just unleashed a visual tsunami that’s set to rock your creative compass! Picture this: a collision of artistic galaxies, where the paintbrush is a magic wand and the canvas is a time machine. Get ready to have your reality twisted, twirled, and turned inside out at the mind-bending spectacle that is the “Origins and Connections” exhibition.

Hold onto your hats as we introduce you to the dynamic duo that’s redefining the boundaries of artistic expression – Méné and Olivia M. Pendergast. These aren’t just artists; they’re reality benders, perception spinners, and dream weavers extraordinaire.

First up in this symphony of surrealism is Méné. Hailing from the vibrant soul of Ivory Coast, this artistic conjurer invites you to step into his kaleidoscope of landscapes. But wait, these aren’t your typical landscapes; these are the landscapes that exist in the liminal space between your mind, your surroundings, and the cosmos. It’s like he took a sneak peek into your thoughts and painted them in glorious technicolor. And just when you thought you’ve seen it all, he lets you loose in a world without perspective – a world where reality’s shackles are shattered, and you’re free to explore with the curiosity of a child. This is art with a punch, an uppercut to the mundane, and a front-row ticket to the theater of the unexpected.

It’s like her brushes are tuned into the wavelength of your innermost thoughts, creating a symphony that resonates in the very fibers of your being. Her figures are like old friends – familiar yet enigmatic, inviting you to join them in their dance through the tapestry of existence.
