A limestone and stucco bust of Queen Nefertiti, dating from about 1340 BC is currently on display at the Neues Museum in Berlin. This exhibition has been closely watched by Egypt’s chief archaeologist, Zahi Hawass who has announced that if Germany cannot prove legal acquisition of the piece, his country wants to see the return of this prized artifact. This cultural relic has created international controversy as it plays to both popular sentiments and national pride.
A very special HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our blog, “Eye on Art”
We would like to thank everyone who has checked out our blog over the past year!
WW artist Susan Dory has just returned from the East Coast, where she installed a large-scale commissioned work at the TF Green International Airport in Warwick, Rhode Island.
Winston Wächter Fine Art is pleased to announce our first solo show entitled Current Events with German sculptor Andreas Kocks, on view through November 28, 2009.
Kocks’ work focuses on the integration of fine art and architecture. His favorite medium is heavy watercolor paper. By cutting into it and installing multiple layers on the site, he transforms the “contained architectural box” into a territorial surface.
In this exhibition the entire gallery feels physically activated as he redefines existing boundaries. The walls of the architecture no longer define the space. Instead, Kocks modifies the conventional cube by removing its innate banality and replaces it with an immediate cerebral experience.
