Giovanna Cerise Retrospective

Retrospective Giovanna Cerise’s new exhibit, Retrospective, opens today, Saturday, January 31, 2015 at 1 PM SLT at the Gay Island Resort gallery. The show contains selected works from 2009 to 2014 and there is some wonderful art to be seen here. I bumped into Giovanna as I looked around in the gallery and we talked about how the exhibit really does display a sense of evolution in her work, from early prim use to now working with mesh. Some of her more recent black and white works remind me of diamonds or fine jewelry. I find them quite breathtaking. giovanna_004 One of my other favorites is Habanera, inspired by Carmen Bizet, which is an older piece created in 2009. It depicts a woman in a red dress surrounded by a swirling guitar and hands. I was standing from afar watching it and then realized one can actually step into the work itself and become part of the experience. The colors and the movements are stunning. A must see! giovanna_005 Photographs of Giovanna Cerise’s work by Kate Bergdorf
