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.
Stephanie Pui-Mun Law's work follows in the tradition of the mythic arts. She is based in Oakland, CA. Her paintings explores a surreal otherworld, and the manifestations of desire and archetype when seen with a shifted perception. Much of her inspiration stems from mythology and folklore, mingled with the movement of dance, and the chaos of Nature's wild growth. She has authored and illustrated 4 books ("Dreamscapes", through North Light Books), a series on watercolor technique within a fantastical framework, and she is also the author and illustrator of the Shadowscapes Tarot (2009, Llewellyn Worldwide).
