Opening Reception: Marc le Rest's "The Mad Hatter" and "Golden"

by Kim Larson May 19, 2015

On Saturday May 16, 2015 Modern Eden opened ‘The Mad Hatter’, the US debut of French artist, Marc le Rest. Le Rest’s oil paintings evolve like fashion collections, mixing the raw nature of the animal kingdom with culturally-rooted fabric hats and outfits. In conjunction with Marc le Rest's series, "Golden" was on display, an art exhibition dedicated to the fabulous and fancy— from gilded opulence to the modern baroque. Our glittering patrons and artists enjoyed the shining works hung in salon-style on the front gallery walls. Both shows are on view through June 6, 2015.
