UnReal Art at the Gardens

Share

Real/UnReal: Botanical Studies by John Bonath, the current art exhibit in Gates Garden Court at our York Street location, sets our concrete walls ablaze with color. From afar, the works are simply appealing interpretations of botanical subjects. Portraits, perhaps. There is more than meets the eye, however. This manipulated digital photography by the well-known Denver artist is born out of the ideologies of Magic Realism and asks viewers to contemplate their definition of reality. A companion display provides secrets to understanding the artist's process and provides clues to which portraits are of "real" flowers. Or - are any of these images "real?" Be sure to visit the exhibit before January 4 to decide for yourself.

Thanks, Lisa. These are indeed very thought-provoking pieces of art. For the rest of you, you all have got to see these large-scale pieces up close. These photos do not do them justice. The detail is amazing, and the colors shocking.
