Exhibition

Nostalgia Presages A Lightness of Being

Exhibiting Artists: Pedro Felix Garcia II

Venue: Utterly Art 20B Mosque Street > venue details

Dates: 14 Jun 2012 - 24 Jun 2012

Like a treasured memoire from yesteryear, the painted world of Pedro Garcia is suffused by a warm sepia which casts a honeyed glow over its faded faces. It is an existence of old-world charm, where gallant men and elegant ladies engage in a dance of courtly manners, amidst the serenades of able musicians and the whispers of attentive waiters in nocturnal ballrooms. Inspired by European modernist artists of the 19th and 20th centuries, some compositions are re-rendered to present tableaux of romantic whimsy. This inward longing for a past that never was sweeps its figures into giddy flights of fancy as they waft in their floating world.
