Ingrid’s new book, Madness of the Muses – the Art of Ingrid Dee Magidson is in print and available!
From the back cover:
Ingrid Dee Magidson’s art career began just over six years ago. In that brief time, she has had 15 solo exhibitions (most of those sellout shows), a museum exhibition, her work included twice at the Hermitage Museum Foundation Gala in New York City, numerous magazine features and a loyal international group of art collectors which include: the Alpina Gstaad, Antonio Banderas, Melanie Griffith and Jackie Bezos. The Madness of the Muses is a richly illustrated look at the life and work of this rising art star. Magidson’s unique style combines the poetic paintings of the Renaissance with contemporary and antique materials to form works of sublime beauty. Each piece is imbued with a sense of spirit, as if time has stopped and we are looking at people long gone, but brought back to life in Magidson’s extraordinary work. One collector describes his experience:
It is as if the artist has compressed 500 years into a single work of art. These few fragile layers of antique objects, paint and butterflies are arranged in such a way that I can see into the very depths of a stranger’s soul. I begin to pull away, but I can’t stop looking.
Ingrid’s solo exhibition, Madness of the Muses, opens Saturday, August 3rd in Aspen at the Forré Gallery. The reception is from 4 to 8pm. This is Ingrid’s third one-person exhibition in Aspen. The exhibition will be comprised of 12 of her most experimental works to date, none of which have been shown before. Each piece is a reach into the depths of creativity that has made Ingrid’s work so unusual and so collectible.
Madness of the Muses – the Art of Ingrid Dee Magidson, Ingrid’s new book, will be officially released at the reception. The book features Ingrid’s work from the last seven years. Also included is a catalogue of the complete works from 2006 to 2013, along with essays and articles by prominent art collector Bradley E. Place and others. Hardcover, 176 pages.
TheForré Gallery is located at 426 East Hyman Ave in Aspen (a quarter of a block from the Wheeler Opera House). Ingrid will be at the reception to visit with collectors and to sign books. It is a rare opportunity to see so many great works together, meet the artist and get her new book. RSVP is not necessary but plan to come early, it is likely to get very busy. See you there.
