- Theodore Roosevelt

SHAKEN NOT STIRRED
by Robert Mars
SEPTEMBER 15 - OCTOBER 15
ÆRENA Galleries and Gardens invites you to celebrate SHAKEN NOT STIRRED, a showcase featuring the artwork of Robert Mars.Inspired by the imagery that came out of the 1950’s and 60’s, Mars celebrates the icons of American pop culture and pays tribute to the Golden Age of Hollywood and the romance of celebrity. Layering vintage newspaper and magazine clippings into intricate patterns, he then screen prints instantly recognizable brands and celebrities on the top layer - sealing it all under shining and impenetrable resin to create an homage to pop culture in each piece. With his latest showcase, SHAKEN NOT STIRRED, Robert Mars is delighted to unveil a new selection of work inspired by James Bond and the ‘Bond Girls’ that defined him. We invite you to join us for our latest showcase, SHAKEN NOT STIRRED, on view in our gallery locations and online.
