Serena Carone, "That Which I See (Ce Que Je Vois)"

Art, Galleries Free
The work of Carone, a self-taught French artist born in 1958, harkens back to classic Surrealism, albeit filtered through contemporary installation aesthetics—most notably in the hyperrealistic pair of women's eyes embedded directly into the white Sheetrock of one of the gallery walls. There's also a brood of lifelike bats hanging from the ceiling, much as they would in a cave. The intertwining themes of death, desire and dreams seem pretty much inescapable here.
