  • Modern Eden Gallery is pleased to present ‘Mona’, an international group exhibition featuring contemporary adaptations of Da Vinci’s masterpiece, “Mona Lisa”. The Mona Lisa has been acclaimed as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world." In this exhibition contemporary artists from all over the world are taking on that tradition and re-creating the well-known masterpiece with their own artistic variations.
  • "I was always interested in the world around me, and more importantly the things I couldnt see. I was drawn to fantasy and other worlds only obtainable through my imagination. That interest led to my love of creating art, and is the reason I became a self taught artist.

    There has always been an attraction to fairy tales, legends, myths, and childrens books. I like the limitless nature of imagination in them, the possibility, and the danger. The inspiration from these stories had led me to use my painting as a way of storytelling.

    The majority of my subjects are females. I prefer this because of the subtle yet complex emotion and beauty they can express. I try to pinpoint certain themes that focus on duality. For instance, the struggle between good and evil, sanity and insanity, tragedy and comedy, strength and fragility, and all things opposites. I feel that opposites create an interesting balance." ~Matthew J. Price
