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.
Christopher C. Curtis (C3) was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma on August 28th, 1981. He took an interest in drawing at an early age and decided to pursue an art career while in high school. After high school Chris moved to San Francisco where he attended the Academy of Art University. While taking classes at the Academy he gained an interest in the photo-real style of painting and pursued a similar style in his drawings. In 2004 Chris received a BFA from the Academy.
Since then Chris has had several group and solo shows in San Francisco, CA. where he still continues to work on his art.
