Cove St. Arts in Portland is showing works by Marc Leavitt and Grace DeGennaro.
Marc Leavitt’s Mithuna series weaves East and West together. “Mithuna,” in Tantric art, refers to couples sculptured in close embrace. The series is an ongoing exploration of gender, nationality, and human sensuality.
Grace DeGennaro’s compositions are based on traditional symbols and sacred geometry. Her work also bridges Eastern and Western thought through ancient uses of pattern, symmetry, and iconic symbolism found in traditional forms such as Byzantine mosaics, indigenous weaving, and Tibetan mandalas.
