"Alkistis Wechsler: Mirrors of Psychological States and Movements"
2007-09-07 until 2007-10-07
Marziart Internationale Galerie
Hamburg, , DE Germany

At the Gallery Maziart in Hamburg, in a group exhibition from September 7 to October 3, 2007, the work of Alkistis Wechsler is displayed from two separate series: one referring to the Sicilian town of Ragusa-Ibla, and the other to the city of London, UK, where the artist currently lives. Austrian by nationality, Wechsler was born in Greece and spent her childhood mainly living on the musical island of Corfu. She has also lived in Italy and Austria. Alkistis Wechsler has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since May 2007.

For Part One:

A far distant place and time where feelings of nostalgia, sensuality and the sadness of a beauty that is no more untouched are experienced. The scratched surface, the interrupted lines of perfection, open spaces where the covered subterran of the soul escapes from conformity.

The Other Part:

The physical process of creating these works paralleled another process, that of exploration and recognition of a new territory, a new natural landscape and architectural environment, and also a new human landscape to recognize, to dialogue and to mingle with.

And, with that time starts a new personal mythology for the artist - the interpretation and the transformation of external impressions to a new interior world that begins to exist in the colours, proportions and compositions that are those own of their creator, Alkistis Wechsler.

Now is the time to let go of the escapism to a distant Utopia, the artwork of recreated Ragusa-Ibla. Now comes the moment for a process, still on going, of paintings, stories, and collages of London and Londoners. An ongoing process of experience, love and personalization of a new Utopia, with the brush touch of Alkistis Wechsler.

Work can be purchased from Marziart for the duration of the exhibition.
