Washington, 2nd May 2013, Art Media Agency (AMA).
The event titled “Awake in the Dream World: The Art of Audrey Niffenegger“ will be held at the NSWA in Washington, from 21st June to 10 November 2013. Organised under the curatorship of Krystyna Wasserman, the exhibition will feature the works of Audrey Niffenegger, an artist who has made a name for herself in the field of visual arts and who namely wrote The Time Traveler’s Wife.
Through 239 paintings, drawings, prints and art books, the artist will unveil a mysterious, bizarre and fanciful world, real and imaginary at the same time. She uses both images and words to describe universal experiences such as the ephemeral and addictive nature of love, the ineluctability of death as well as the particular feeling conveyed by the passing of time.
The artist’s corpus is the reminiscence of her renowned predecessors, such as Edward Gorey, Audrey Beardsley, Egon Schiele and Horst Janssen, seen through the honest brutality and the feminine perspective of the artist.
