DITTE GANTRIIS TO UNVEIL NEW WORK AT TRIBECA GRAND HOTEL
NEW YORK, NY—GrandLife and Passionate Magazine are proud to present Danish artist Ditte Gantriis’ new project “A Note on Cravings”. The opening reception will be held from 8 PM to 11 PM on Friday, March 6, 2009 at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City.
Gantriis draws inspiration from several 20th Century movements and other seedier sources to create an elegant and intensely erotic experience. The series introduces a new style of work for the artist, combining illustration and collage techniques. “A Note on Cravings” evokes Russian constructivism, Art Deco, and commercial illustrations of the 1950's. This is Gantriis' first show in the United States.
Gantriis' work is also featured in the debut issue of Passionate Magazine, an emerging-artists portfolio, launching at this year's Armory Art Fair.
“A Note on Cravings” will be viewable in the Tribeca Grand's Church Lounge from Thursday, March 5 through Sunday, March 8, 2009, coinciding with The Armory Show 2009 International Art Fair. The exhibit is also sponsored by Art Remix Projects, an emerging arts organization based in New York and Paris focused on new models for art production and the art market.
