One more for Berlin folks: Next Friday, a beautiful forest-themed show will be opening at Strychnin Gallery.

From the press release:

"In concordance with the United Nation's International Year of Forests, Strychnin Gallery presents 'The Enchanted Forest' an international charity group show curated by Yasha Young and Giovanni Cervi that is dedicated to the forests and their inhabitants all over the world.

The show should remind people of the drastic damage that is constantly done to our forests as well as their beauty, uniqueness and importance.

Many lovingly and elaborately crafted sculptures as well as paintings and photographs by over 30 international artists will display both the desolation of deforestation and the forest‘s magic and liveliness that we have to save.

10 percent of the price of every sold artwork will be donated to a project of the WWF!"

What impresses me particularly about the line-up is the huge number of female artists including great young talents like Lindsey Carr (below) whose deep love and fascination for biology and painting are very visible in her extraordinary and forever growing symbiotic menagerie.

Lindsey Carr at Imagine Gallery, Suffolk

Judging by her recent blog posts, Lindsey Carr (previously featured) has been preparing for her Suffolk solo show that opens this weekend like only few artists I know and I admire her artistic work ethic greatly.

And for the audience this means a plethora of beautiful new works that combine a Henri Rousseauesque boldness, a Tiffany Bozicesque ornamentality and a Walton Fordesque wilderness and by adding her own heightened sense for impeccable composition and exactitude in execution, Lindsey mixes them all together to create something new.

I couldn't find out any clear information about how long her works will be on show so do check back with the gallery. Details below.

Oh, and à propos Walton Ford, I stumbled upon this video feature on Juxtapoz the other day. It's worth your time.

Opening reception: Sunday, Feb 27, 12 PM onwards

Address: Imagine Gallery, Hall Street, Long Melford, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 9JL, UK, tel: +44[0]1787 378786, email: imaginegallery@hotmail.co.uk

Gallery hours: Mon - Sat: 10 AM - 6 PM, Sun: 12 - 4 PM

Next up is Lindsey Carr who’s come a bloody long way, if I may say so. These new “studies”, as you humbly call them, are awe-inspiring, Lindsey!
