Suzie Harrison The canvases show life drawn from experience, perception and individual interpretation. They are placed side by side underscoring the individual thought and emotion behind the art. The show is called "Menage a trois," and features three artists -- Paula Schoen, Georges Monfils and Christian Lopez. The trio interpreted chosen topics for the show exclusively at Marion Meyer Contemporary Art. From creating and designing guitars, to a 6-foot tall milk carton, looking at intangibles such as time and memory -- each artist conceptualized these topics into art. "We came up with this idea earlier this year over shots of tequila," Monfils said.
