The artwork on show reveals a thematic split: visual allusions to Paradise hinting at a once Heavenly state on the one hand. On the other, the embodiment of each artist’s unique path to their own idiosyncratic states of Paradise on Earth that may well trigger similar experiences in the eye of the exhibit-visiting beholder.

 

How can we create our own Earthly Paradise?

 

We live our frantic daily lives forever chasing fantasy. What we really need is alternatives to guide us back to the Eden of our true desires. Contemporary art can serve as a perfect conduit to the roadmap to who we really are. It can help us absorb, internalize a wellspring of creativity we can draw upon on the path to our own Elysium.

 

For example the experience while ‘creating’ an artwork can lead the artist into a subjective Paradise – the thus created piece will only be a souvenir of the artist’s individual Eden.
