Questing the Sacred – Paris Exhibition
From different cultures and different parts of the globe, twelve artists offer us to contemplate a most beatific vision of the world. From Russia to Australia to London, Paris and Vienna to the West coast of the United States, these twelve artists (5 women and 7 men) unite on a quest to evoke the sacred.
Their paintings techniques are classical, impregnated with a transcendent light, radiating golden colour and sparkling. Hindu deities, Buddhist bodhisattvas, Byzantine Patriarchs, mother goddesses, their sublime works evoke the sacred in a radiant, pure and lovely manner.
We look to majestic figures, peaceful and serene, their eyes closed in a deep meditation. A celestial architecture draws above them, spiralling and solidifying into light-filled crystals. Sacred geometry, and spectral colours, panoramic views, dreams and revelations.
Together they represent three generations of visionary art. The eldest, Ernst Fuchs (born in 1930 in Vienna) is a renowned international and recognized artist as one the founders of the Vienna School of fantastic realism. Like the masters old, he directly transmitted aspects of his vision and his refined techniques paint for talented apprentices:
Kuba Ambrose (Australia), L. Caruana (France), a. Andrew Gonzalez (USA), Amanda Sage (USA) and Oleg Korolev (Russia).
These have, in turn, organized seminars and transmitted their knowledge to the artists such as as David Heskin (USA), Aloria Weaver (USA) Daniel Mirante (England) and Timea Tallian (England). With Maura Holden (USA) and Liba Waring Stambollion (France), they share deep ties that unite them in as artists, visionaries and “painters – prophets”.
