Addressing the Melancholy

October 21 - November 17

Art on 5th

Local Austin-based artist Chris Guarino creates original cast resin sculptures augmented with found objects and mixed media elements. The work in Addressing the Melancholy is an attempt to process feelings of loss, emptiness, and pain. Only by confronting the source of our suffering directly can it be accepted and understood. These sculptures chronicle the artist’s journey from pain to acceptance, and embody the transformative effect of the creative process.
