Irma’s Craft: Old Dutch Masters to Contemporary Ascot Hats
September 15 - September 19Free
This latest exhibition by Irma’s Craft (Irma Latsanych) will amaze and inspire with two of her latest collections.
The ‘Old Dutch Masters’ is a collection of 3D paintings made from air-dry clay. This collection has been inspired by the origins from the Middle Ages and Ancient Greco-Roman art, still-life painting emerged as a distinct genre in Western painting by the late 16th century and began as a particular genre with Netherlandish painting of the 16th and 17th centuries. Irma as a 21st century artist developed the idea using modern materials to create the contemporary take on the classical genre.
The paintings with their vibrant colours against the black background intrigue and captivate your attention. Each flower petal and every leaf is executed to perfection, trying to capture the resemblance of the flowers’ unique natural beauty.
The ‘Contemporary Ascot Hats’ collection is another stunning creation from Irma, combining life-like flowers and Old Dutch still-life painting allowing each hat to be a one-of-a-kind piece.
