Paintings by Mezza9
Visionary artist Mezza9 paints toward a new consciousness. Collectors nationwide have been discovering Mezza9’s art for more than a decade.
Working in oil, acrylic and mixed-media equally, Mezza9’s cirque figures soar in these narrative visionist paintings (visionary/impressionistic) which convey the movement of acrobats, dancers, and flow artists; their strength, beauty and connectedness to source.
This lush juxtaposition of traditional and impressionistic styles with contemporary subjects transforms street performers, aerialists, hoop dancers, trapeze artists, into the aerobatic twirling Skymaids and Skymen who make forays into the alternately ethereal underwater and cloud filled diaphonous scapes in the blissful realm of Nebulon.

Available Paintings by Mezza9
During the last dozen years, Mezza9 has been creating several wall-sized works and a series of sculpture of beehive disco balls, a public art project, as well as planning future collaborations with flow artists.
In 2014 she relocates to the West Coast and seeks many of the highly respected galleries and museums for this new body of work.
Like all of her large-scale paintings, the new series are to have interactive kinetic parts and and an ethereal, other-worldly feel. By the sea in North Carolina was the perfect environment for birthing one of the four works. This one, Aron’s Aerosport, has a steam punk and puppetry feel. The central pieces feature floating women who appear to be sawed on boxes like a magician of lore create an allure of the dream quality of the loving friendships that went into the manifestation of this paintings.
The front ten feet feature a chariot driven by the fire spinners Rachel Eliazar and Mark Karavan who drive the team of rod-puppet saber tooth tigers. At the back, Dana Singleton watches behind with a periscope and DJ Aron plays the music which floats the figures.
“Aron’s Aerosport” is an engaging narrative which depicts the magical transportation of music. 30’x10′ oils on wood support.
“Mysteria” is a four paneled piece featuring dancers and acrobats floating and flying
and carousel horses that have run off the carousel and into the forest in this bachanalia scene. Oil on wood. Center panel shown here. 4’x8′
