Tristan und Isolde

2Giovanna Cerise’s new exhibit Tristan und Isolde at Italian Verse opens tomorrow, July 15, 2015 at 1:30 PM. This breathtaking show is of course inspired by the opera with the same name in three acts by composer Richard Wagner. Giovanna quotes in a notecard available at the landing a short passage from a letter from Wagner to Franz List from 1854 where Wagner states that [a]s I have never in life felt the real bliss of love, I must erect a monument to the most beautiful of all my dreams, in which, from beginning to end, that love shall be thoroughly satiated. And this is certainly the sentiment that is represented by this work, a majestic build in dreamy blue and white hues. Some of the blue areas are transparent, lending the viewer an impression of large precious stones. There is music by Wagner available here as well, simply turn off the stream and turn on sound and click on a ball. Bravo, Giovanna such impressive work, again. Finally, I am also excited to announce here that Giovanna Cerise has agreed to show a new installation at Berg by Nordan Art October through December 2015, which marks the opening the of the ground-level area of the gallery. Please be on the lookout for announcements.
