  • 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.

  • "As a child I was ok, just a little bit too inquisitive and just a little bit too obsessed by drawing and art history. So when I grew up I got a degree in philosophy and a phd in mathematical logic, and then I decided to follow my lifelong passion for visual arts and thus attended the Fine Art Academy of Bologna (illustration and comics, fine arts). I am geeky. I know that.

    In 2009 with Soulfood Community I founded Soupy Records, a project involving both music and visual arts.

    I am currently living and working in Bologna, italy. My favourite medium is traditional oil painting, though I enjoy watercolours as well. I paint over canvas, wood panels, old golden frames and whatever I find in my cellar.

    I love illustration and fairy tales, old christmas postcards, ancient greek, latin, logic and baroque patterns." ~Erica Calardo
