Modern Eden Gallery presents Golden, an art show inspired by gold and featuring works that go beyond the mere material application to embody the cultural and historical implications of what is ‘golden’.
Throughout history—from the gilded palaces and monuments of the ancient world to the golden Baroque-style halls of Versailles—gold has been used to symbolize power, wealth, and prosperity. The lust for gold has inspired centuries of westward migration in search of lost cities of gold, roads paved with gold, and river valleys full of gold. Artists and craftsmen have used gold for thousands of years to engender status and to decorate gods and noblemen alike. Today in popular culture, gold is still a symbol used to represent the fabulous and fancy.
Redd Walitzi paints sensual portraits of ethereal yet slightly-feral, fairy-tale women. Influenced by the old world Rococo ornamentation of her native Bavaria, Redd creates intricate, swirling laser cut wood canvases whose flourishes echo her fluid use of paint and mixed-media materials. Her technicolor muses enact a dreamily erotic exploration of both the lure of fleeting modern day high fashion glamor (her subjects are often wearing luminous eye makeup and glossy lipstick) as well as the original meaning of the term glamor, which in ancient times referred to illusory shapeshifting used by supernatural beings to perilously enchant hapless humans.
