“The world is blue at its edges and in its depths,” Rebecca Solnit
Many have contemplated the universe of blues, from Goethe to Virginia Wolf, from Wassily Kandisky to Georgia O’Keefe, artists, poets, writers, philosophers, all explored blue’s tentacled reach into universal questions of desire and yearning, excitement and repose, sympathy and obsession, melancholy and solitude. SOMETHING BLUE presents a palette of blues spread across the gallery space.
From the delicate “Blaue Pyramide” by Herbert Hamak to the boldly iconic “Torero Bride” by Kimiko Yoshida to the brooding “Beaugency II” by Elger Esser, hues of blue come alive in this vibrant selection of paintings, sculptures, and photographs by 8 artists from across the globe. What emerges is a celebration of the most rare in nature and symphonic of the colors, a hue that transcends to an experience, an incantation, an incarnation of the most whimsical and exceptional heights of the imagination.
