Gallery Hopping

It is a while ago that I posted the last Gallery Hopping and in the meantime opened many interesting installations. I choose a couple of them:

Every Picture Tells a Song
The images of Cold Frog are touching

Kake Broek and Cold Frog have a large group of admirers and followers at their Flickr streams and I am one of them. Kake a re loved for the photos of his strange avatar which are dedicated to caricatures of various, often very political themes and Cold is known for her surrealistic and funny works. But don't expect to see the same in this exhibition. A good gallerist is able to inspire artists for something new. Their images are themed by songs. While Cold has chosen songs from different artists and surprises with her dark and sad sides, Kake has chosen songs of Syd Barrett, one of the early members of the Band Pink Floyd. He is seen as one of the pioneers of Psychedelic Rock, but had to to leave the band due to mental and drug issues. The song text and links to the youtube songs are to be found at floating sheets in front of the works. This show is a must see and you should take the time to try the links to the related songs.

Open through May and June.

The Tidings of Magpies

The images of Talullah Winterwolf are not something that one would hang over the sofa, they are beautiful, deep and fascinating but also disturbing and strange.

 A Dream, the wings to fly

Artist London Junckers had the inspiration for this piece from the history of aviation starting with the dream to fly.  It is play- and beautiful.

The Absense of Colours

...is an installation by Ranadeep an Milly Sharple which shows a nice collection of monochrome works. The nice presentation could not avoid that I became confused after a while what I have already seen and which was new. I think a bit more different works would have helped to make the installation more surprising and interesting. But definitely recommended!

Melusina Parkin created a couple of spaces which ate covering different themes, but all in her unique simplified style. Great as always!

This is one of many interesting and entertaining builds. Have look at the whole gallery with Betty Tureaud's private collection at the ground and the rocket TP to the installations!

Thx so much Quan for this extensive post about all newness in 'Gallery land', now we are all up-to-date again.
I especially loved your item about our gallery; i.e. Nitroglobus and the resume's you wrote about the artists ColdFrog and Kake. Only thing I can add is that the music the 16 art works refer to is played in our gallery during this exhibition.
Thx Quan
