Since 2003, Mercedes Helnwein has been working her way through the L.A. art scene, attracting a strong following and positive critical reception. No Way Home spans 7 years of her visual imagery in pastels, paint, pencil and film stills and includes photographs of the artist in her studio. Inspired at an early age by the blues, Helnwein's portraits - primarily of women - exude a southern gothic melancholy, and according to the artist, contrast the idyllic versus dark, in much of American culture. Her female protagonists are imperfect, arresting, beautiful and mysterious.
