The Dual Essence of Femininity

The Dual Essence of Femininity

The exhibition “Grace and Valor” draws inspiration from the rich tapestry of female archetypes, from the nurturing warmth of the mother to the fierce warrior spirit of the goddess. It pays homage to the complexity of female roles and identities, transcending time and culture to highlight the universal themes of strength, resilience, and elegance.

About the exhibition:

Grace and Valor is a testament to the power of art to evoke empathy, challenge stereotypes, and celebrate the diversity and richness of the female experience bringing together the distinct voices of Torpe, Mann, von Streng, and Zelenska, seeking to create a dialogue around empowerment, identity, and the societal roles of women.

Galerie Sara Lily Perez invites art lovers, critics, and the curious alike to immerse themselves in the works of these remarkable artists with the unveiling of this exhibition. This event invites you to delve into a collection where the influence and narratives of women in art are brought to the forefront for appreciation and reflection.

About the artists:

Anne Torpe, a Danish painter born in 1981, has carved a unique space for herself in the contemporary art scene with her evocative representations of everyday scenarios set in cinematic ambiances. Her work is characterized by a fusion of memory and contemporary lifestyle, blending glamorous non-binary characters with abstracted perspectives in a figurative cubism style. In her paintings she question the fragility and instability of our perceived reality, creating multilayered images that invite viewers into a fictional, experiential universe deeply rooted in the history of modernism.

Julia Mann

Born in 1987 in Landau, Mann discovered her passion for art at 19. After a hiatus, she returned to her artistic pursuits with vigor in 2020. Mann’s work is known for its special colorful and powerful presentation, aiming to visually challenge and engage viewers.

Her use of strong, eye-catching colors conveys an intense, urban attitude to life, inviting people to dream of other worlds. Her exhibitions, including those at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Mainz and Galerie Textor 74 in Frankfurt, reflect her desire to fill hearts with joy through her artwork.

Rubica von Streng

Based in the vibrant heart of Berlin, Rubica von Streng emerges as a masterful artist with an esteemed Master of Arts degree from the Universität der Künste Berlin. Her acclaimed “PortLand” series navigates the forefront of contemporary discourse, weaving together the critical threads of environmental activism and societal evolution within the canvas of abstract expressionism.

Von Streng’s artistry illuminates complex narratives with an ethereal touch, inviting an immersive dialogue with the urgencies of today through her refined manipulation of color and form.

Solomiya Zelenska

The artists transitions from fashion to painting, focusing on the nuances of daily life through a minimalist lens that highlights ordinary moments with emotional depth.

Her spontaneous creative process reflects both personal resilience and the collective spirit of the Ukrainian art community. Zelenska’s work, deeply rooted in her cultural heritage, engages themes of resilience, identity, and human complexity, inviting viewers into a reflective dialogue.

Heute stellen wir euch Supernova vor: eine Pop-up Galerie, welche im August im Haus am See ihr  Gruppenprojekt "Foodporn" präsentiert. ... „Fotografie als Waffe“ lautete der Titel für eine Ausstellung, die KI und Fotografie auf den Prüfstand stellte. Immerhinee drei Tage konnte im @kunstraumkreuzberg über die Wirkung von deepfakes, historischer Fotografie, Dokumentation von Lebenssituationen und Werbefotografie gestaunt und diskutiert werden. Alle Künstler:innen benutzten dabei das digitale eingefangene Bild als zentrales Medium, welches analog zum Ausdruck der eigenen Identität wird. @artweaponphotography #artnow: The current exhibition at the @koeniggalerie showcases a wide variety of critical works and sculptures from artists like JOANA VASCONCELOS, JULIA BELIAEVA, ARMIN BOEHM amongst others.
