Greetings from Paris

Categories: Artists, Painting

As I was purusing one of my favorite art blogs, Booooooom, I came across a lovely discovery for an art show in Paris. Sure, not all of us can just whip over to Paris on a moments notice, but we can try to soak up as much as we can from right here at our computers and the Local Social blog. : )

While the story is about these three artists, the story chronicling their adventure is being told by the curator and photographer Danielle Rubi. Without Danielle’s extensive library of photos and videos, we wouldn’t have the chance to view this work. So, a big thank you to all involved!

Through the work the artists commit themselves to “…explore the literal and abstracted meanings of a greeting: the first words from an unknown being, a message from a foreign land, a signal from the afterlife, a connection of the individual with the infinite, a personal plea to the universe, or a presence emerging from the dark.” or more simply put, “a greeting is the turning point between the unknown and the known.”

Almost all of the work was created in a village in Burgandy, in the three weeks leading up to the show opening in Paris. Sounds pretty amazing. What a great way to be inspired.

The show is taking place right now in Brachfeld Gallery in Paris.
