An Artwork’s Journey Home – From Aspen to Houston to Aspen

The Artist Dreams is an unusual piece in many ways.  First it is by artist, Ingrid Dee Magidson, which by definition makes it unique.  But even within that broad category of the different, The Artist Dreams pushes new boundaries.

The Artist Dreams by Ingrid Dee Magidson

The Artist Dreams, 2013

About two years ago, Ingrid’s son found the remains of a deer near their home.  A mountain lion had killed the poor creature, and other animals had eaten what it had left behind.  When Ingrid’s son found it, only part of the spine remained.  Knowing how his mother likes certain objects, he brought it home.  Ingrid cleaned and preserved the bones and put it aside for just the right piece.

A year later, the right piece was ready for the spine – The Artist Dreams.  It is a surrealist work representing the illusory nature of time, how living things are at once so fragile and strong; living only a few years, but leaving behind bones that could last centuries, millennia or even eons.  The work is also unique in that it incorporates mirrors on both sides of the spine.  The viewer is able to see the front and sides of the spine simultaneously.  It was a technically difficult piece that came out spectacularly.

The Artist Dreams was debuted at the Aspen Art Fair in August 2013.  The Unix Gallery out of New York City exhibited this and other of Ingrid’s work.  There were several interested collectors, but the piece did not sell until it was exhibited in Houston later that month.  Well known art collector and philanthropist, Dr. Carolyn Farb saw the work and immediately fell in love with it.  She purchased it and hung it prominently in her Houston home.  She compares it to work by one of her other favorite artists: Frida Kahlo.

And we come full circle to the 2014 Aspen Art Fair, which opens July 31st at the Ice Gardens in Aspen.  Unix Gallery will once again be showing Ingrid’s newest work.  Work that is unique, challenging and always beautiful.

Ingrid’s Newest Work, Ethereal Visions

Ingrid’s newest work will be featured at the Unix Gallery (booth 301) at Silicon Valley Contemporary from April 10 to 13.  This prestigious art event will be held at the impressive and recently remodeled San Jose McEnery Convention Center.  More than fifty galleries from ten different countries will be displaying their best work.  Of course, Ingrid’s work will be shown at such an important event.

Ingrid will be debuting several pieces, among them will be her most recent experimental work, Ethereal Visions.  In this unusual work, she has combined paint, an antique handbag, butterflies, interactive lights, and seven layers of imagery into a must see work of art.  To abuse a cliché, pictures don’t do it justice.

More information about the event dates, time and location is listed below.  You have to go to this one!
