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.
Connecticut illustrator Carly Janine Mazur works traditionally to bring to life her vision of a solitary world. Her paintings evoke a sense of intimacy within the viewer, inviting you in with solid composition juxtaposed against fine rendering. Carly's subject matter focuses on the hauntingly rendered human figure within a minimalistic, yet harsh environment to touch upon peoples' reclusive relationship with their environment.
