MONACO, April 26, 2014 - / - Award winning artist, Sultana Raza’s artworks are now on display at the Armomita Gallery booth (H10 to H12) at Art Monaco 2014 at the Grimaldi Forum from April 24th to the 27th 2014.
‘It’s exciting to be here, and to be surrounded by such varied and interesting art-works,’ Sultana said. The event attracts about 10,000 visitors in just 4 days. Galleries from around the world are exhibiting their artists. ‘It’s inspiring to meet and greet artists from around the world. The visitors seem to be just as cosmopolitan,’ Sultana added.
Her artwork, “Fallen Angels”, portrays a subject that is relevant to everyone living on Planet Earth today: ecology. A topic that artists have been encouraged to explore at Art Monaco ‘14. While “Fallen Angels” is open to various interpretations, it reflects issues concerning the very earth that we all take for granted,’ she explained.
Fallen Angel from the ‘Dispersion’ series shows two figures who are dispersing, as they are falling towards a vortex. This vortex seems to be made up of dark reds and blues. Red is associated with hell in Western thinking. Perhaps these figures are spiraling towards ‘hell.’ As forests are depleted, will our earth turn into a nightmarish landscape with an ever-shrinking supply of organic materials necessary for human sustenance, including food, water and oxygen?
Another of Sultana’s art-work, Understanding the Universe is on display as well. As the name implies, it’s cosmic in scope, about trying to understand the building blocks of the universe with our binary left brain/right brain approach. Will human beings ever succeed in understanding the universe? If so, will they end up having deeper insights into themselves as well?
Art Monaco ‘14 will present recognized and established galleries as well as emerging ones from all regions around the globe and will be able to expose and sell their art in a sumptuous setting. The occasion will allow the forthcoming of all individuals to gather around in a social hub with some of the most influential and renowned individuals of our time. With over 4000 art pieces being exposed for exhibition and sale, it’s an opportunity not to miss for those eager to purchase or sale some of the most remarkable art collections around the world or simply to allow yourself to get taken aback by one of a kind inspirational creations. http://en.comemonaco.com
