Visionary Alchemy Exhibit in Tribeca
This Saturday April 29, 2017 The Guardian will be shown in the Visionary Alchemy Group Exhibit in Tribeca. The show is sponsored by the Society for Art of Imagination and is opening Saturday April 29 from 6 to 9pm at One Art Space, 23 Warren St., New York, NY 10007. It will be a great show of mostly paintings, The Guardian may be the only photographic work present. There will be work from H.R. Giger and Alex Grey on view as well as wonderful works from a huge collection of international artists all working in the realm of the imagination. The following quoted from the Society for Art of Imagination’s website:
This art may be called by many names – Fantastic Realism, Surrealism, Magic Realism, Visionary Art, Cosmic Art and Inspirational Art, however the work is neither purely abstract nor rigidly realistic. Members of the Society work independently of one another in various countries yet their work shows a consistent ethos.
“The artist should be a creator, a transformer linked to the inner spirit who, with skill and imagination, constructs a creation which embodies or symbolises a significant human value in a way which never existed before; to enhance, illuminate and perpetuate what is best in human values.”
“What is termed ‘art of imagination’ portrays the dramas which are the human conditions, exploring and expressing mysteries so as to make them comprehensible.”
“…and the chief contribution that artists of the imagination can make is their power to enlarge the range of emotions which affect all of us, enriching psychic, metaphysical, and spiritual values, and the appreciation of the beauties of the physical world which expand delight in existence and enhance self-realisation.”
The Guardian is a 16 x 20 archival, pigment-based digital print from the Winged Women series. It is an artist proof and is going quite reasonably at $650 framed as you see below.
