What is art?

Here und Dort

Last night was the opening of Here und Dort, an exhibition the Mina Dresden Gallery. It is a collaboration of the Thin Ice Collective and a a selection of German and Russian Artists. I say it was really cool to visit this show, and I’ll post more pics later, but for now, I tell you the real reason I went was to meet Serena Cole, I had interviewed here back in May, and I haven’t seen her work in person since. She creates these mythic portraits based on photos of fashion models. I tell you, it was incredible, the piece titled The Gilded Throne, was just incredible, the gold-leafing on paper, the delicate pencil drawing and the pressed flowers. It is just such a rich and stunning piece of art. Unfortunately, I arrived early, before anyone else, so I didn’t get to meet her in person. I’m pretty sad about that! Next time…

  7. Stunning! There are just some artists that use light, metallic and iridescent paint in such a mesmerizing way. It’s eerily beautiful in a way.
