“The Golden Age” From February 5 to February 26, 2011. Opening Reception on Friday, February 18, 2011 at 7PM.
Icosahedron Gallery, a prime exemplar gallery of the West Chelsea Art District, is pleased to host “The Golden Age”, a group exhibition featuring a mixture of Erotic and Figurative works from artists around the globe. “The Golden Age” will showcase the illuminating artistic abilities of Pedro Albuquerque, Reanna Francis, Yusuke Hirata, Steven Krueger, Paolo Mara, Noura Masri, David Naman, Zelmira Peralta Ramos, Mimi Stajkovic, and Björn Treuter. This guild of artists traverse the spectrum of provocation shedding light on the spectrum of true talent and artistry.
Erotic artists, Pedro Albuquerque, Reanna Francis, David Naman, and Mimi Stajkovic, push the art world into its furthest regions paving the way for a new age of contemporary masters. Pedro Albuquerque, a Portuguese artist splitting time between Oporto, Portugal and Rotterdam, Netherlands, creates one of a kind painted collages. His use of color and subject matter resembles a mixture of pop art and street graffiti that arouse the senses of each of his painting’s onlookers. Reanna Francis from Melbourne, Australia will be exhibiting her erotic pieces of her “girls” as she calls her works of pure raw talent. Reanna uses her life’s tales, trials, and tribulations to evoke images of the female form in torturous situations that intertwine emotions of passion, pleasure, and pain. Canadian photographer, David Naman, uses vibrant color backdrops paired with seductive silhouettes to create works that take one straight to the streets Amsterdam’s Red Light District. Naman is a photographer dedicated to his trade and focuses on recapturing elegance, grace, power, and the simplicity of beauty through his artistry. Lastly, Mimi Stajkovic from the Republic of Serbia creates beautifully mastered pieces that intermix classical and contemporary art stylings of her nude figurative works depicting everyday life in its bare essentials.
“The Golden Age” will also feature works of contemporary artists, Yusuke Hirata, Paolo Mara, Noura Masri, and Björn Treuter whose works span the spectrum of the figurative art world. Yusuke Hirata from Tokyo, Japan will preview showcase pieces that meld the worlds of surrealism and figurative works to create exciting pieces that are eerily beautiful and force viewers to trespass into Hirata’s world that he coins as “The Flexible-Art World”, a world that is dramatic and free from restraint. Paolo Mara from Italy will display his abstract and abstract figurative pieces that take viewers on a transcultural journey from Berlin to Africa alongside the artist’s past experiences. Noura Masri, a Middle Eastern artist from Dubai, resembles the work of a modern-day Picasso whose works focus on the abstract art world, figurative subject matter, and delightful curvature and contour of line exhibited in her work. Rounding the corners of group exhibitors showcasing works in “The Golden Age” is Björn Treuter from Germany. Treuter is an artist whose background in architecture has found a way to create vibrant pieces that are geometrically compelling through his use of repetition, line, and shape that question the dark qualities of mankind.
