This exhibition features beautifully complex paintings and meticulous mixed media work that combine Old Master techniques with modern content by several artists, including Katherine Ace. Each reminiscent of the Dutch Golden Age, they produce masterfully rendered still-life paintings and fairytale-inspired pieces that transport the viewer into a dreamy, yet oddly contemporary, realm.
Ace's work has always been deeply rooted in ancient tales and mythologies. Her series of work featured in this exhibition focuses on the redemption tales by the Grimm brothers.
