This exhibition, which is an Art Couture & Capacity world Media collaboration, presents a glimpse into the work of 5 artists & examines the elements of creativity with emphasis on personal memories.
3 Contemporary artists & 2 photographers in their artworks present from the realm of memory & imagination the personal relationship of their art to time, memory, history and creativity. They invite the viewers to share and enjoy their stories & past experiences, blended with imagination and innovation.
The individual artists explore the scope of memory, including personal elements, selecting some and blotting out others sifting through times of happiness and joy and sometimes blocking off the ones that may be more private and painful. Memories are portrayed in varied media from photographic images of animals and people to portraiture & signature landscapes. Each artist through their medium of choice gives us a collection of their best recollections & experiences to view and question and come to our own conclusions on their art works.
