The Ethereal Dance: A Winter’s Dream
December 1 - December 22, 2021 | Reception: December 2, 2021, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Agora Gallery is proud to announce The Ethereal Dance: A Winter’s Dream, a group exhibition showcasing the creative breadth of eleven artists across a plethora of styles and media. Fire and ice coexist in this exhibition as indissoluble opposites. Like star-crossed lovers, they run towards each other with blind passion one moment and are torn apart forcefully the other. We see bodies crystallized in a frosty cocoon, bleeding from cracks on their frigid skin; flowers receding in a blurry background; or foggy landscapes inhabited by no one. When nature is present in a more disinhibited manner, it is in the confines of a greenhouse, a home, or vibrant folkloristic scenes in lands that exist only in the artist’s imagination. There is a common desire to preserve life from the interference of the outside world. Yet a lesson must be learned: without darkness there is no light and without light shadows cannot be.
