Notes for an Apocalypse (1978), Oil on Canvas (50 x 62″)
I love this Dorothea Tanning quote that has been used within her Press Release for her second solo exhibition of works at Alison Jacques Gallery, London entitled ‘Web of Dreams‘ from 11 July – 27 September 2014. The gallery has worked with The Dorothea Tanning Foundation to curate this show.
“I don’t see why one shouldn’t be absolutely fascinated with the human form, there are so many reasons to be. Besides, we are living in human bodies, we go through life in this world envelope. Why not acknowledge that and try to say something about it? So what I try to say about it is is transformation” (Dorothea Tanning 1993)
When many galleries in London are closing for the summer, this exhibition is a must-see.
