About the show:
Often defined as a kind of cultural malady, Nostalgia is not the emotion that follows a longing for something you lost, or for something you never had to begin with, or that never really existed at all. Its not even, not really, the feeling that arises when you realize that you missed out on a chance, to see something, to know someone, to be part of some adventure or enterprise or milieu that will never come again. Nostalgia most truly and most meaningfully is an emotional experience – always momentary – always fragile – of having what you lost or never had, of seeing what you missed seeing or meeting the people you missed knowing. It is some feeling that overcomes when a minor beauty of the world is momentarily resolved and has always empowered and inspired generations of artists. The feeling produces Artworks recalling memoirs and meanings from the past in a way that might be painful. They present to you almost a piece of the artists themselves. Their thoughts, their emotions and their feelings towards that momentary experience is brought out on the canvas and presented before you. Oftentimes these images provide surrealistic imagery that transports the viewer into a realm of fantasy and dreams. The moment is now in the past, yet there is an attempt to hold on at the same time.
