"Traces of Memory"
2008-11-29 until 2008-12-07
Castello Estense di Ferrara
At the Imbarcadero Rooms of the Ferrara Museum of the Estense Castle ‘Traces of memory’ presents works - spoiled from the routines, conventions, acumulation of practicalities; liberated and delivered into the primary,
sensitivity of self, of the elements. The freshness of English Gardens, the deep blue of the Mediterranean Sea, hellenic Temples, the dancing Genie
even when at rest, are composing the language of visual expression of Alkistis Wechsler in her recent paintings, collages, and digital compositions.
A choice out of the magic box is in this year’s International collective exhibition in Ferrara, as curated by the art critic Paola Trevisan of the Trevisanarte Gallery. Also featured is "A Whirlwind of Recollecting" by Melanie Prapopoulos. Several Premiere Portfolio Members from absolutearts.com are highlighted in the exhibition. They include Jeffery GOUGEON, Maz JACKSON, Keith MORANT, Melanie PRAPOPOULOS, Alkistis WECHSLER. Also represented are Jose Maria CASAS (Regular Portfolio Member), Adam BALOGH (Free Portfolio Member), Andrea GOLDSMITH (Free Portfolio Member), Tamar GREENFELD (Free Portfolio Member), Cherie HANSON (Free Portfolio Member), and Karl MAENZ (Free Portfolio Member).
An illuminated cross point in the sign of Renaissance , between Wechsler’s paintings and the fascinating Castle d’Este.
It was then Renaissance of the senses and the truth of beauty; they were then re-discovering the traces of authenticity
in a poetic, creative marriage between material body and spiritual existence. Love and Psyche were dancing again in
the heart of Europe, irradiating their joy to the entire Univers.
In this exhibition Wechsler shows works of contemplation, of interior spiritual renaissance, of an always renewed
Primavera, the Green time of our Artistic Soul, that finds the path to its Core, the freshness of care, love, creativity;
victorious against the winter blues.
