“We owe at least this much to future generations, from whom we have borrowed
a fragile planet called Earth.” Maurice Strong
‘Ephemeral’, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s second curated exhibition at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, brings together over 60 of the world’s best two and three dimensional artists, whom have explored the theme ‘Ephemeral’ through a lens that resonates with each individual, their experiences, thoughts and feelings on the world and society today.
Almost everything in the universe and our lives is ephemeral or fleeting depending on the time frame, and the lens that we look through.
If we truly look, and see the diversity and fragility of life, take to heart the transient and fleeting nature of existence – it is our hope that the hearts of all people will be moved to appreciate how precious life and love is, and how very important it is to walk lightly and in harmony with the earth, its creatures and each other.
‘Ephemeral’ for the first time will also showcase the work of the Inaugural Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize winners. As a leader and advocate for the arts, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine champions emerging and mid-career artists. In the 5 years since our launch, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine has proudly become a voice, a tribe, and a platform for creatives whose work doesn’t always fit neatly into the traditional fine art “box”. In keeping with our mission, the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize seeks to inspire creatives from around the world to pursue a life and career in the arts, and to help careers grow through our exposure of their work.
The Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Co-Founders Danijela Krha Purssey and Richard Purssey are flying in from Australia to attend the opening reception on 15 September, as are many of the artists and Art Prize winners. We would love to see you there for one fleeting evening as we embrace the ephemeral nature of our lives and experiences together, with love, an open mind and compassion!
