Travel back to a time of mystery and magic, folklore and fantasy, where the nostalgic escape of Victorian ritual prevails – seemingly in both our waking and dreamlike moments. This weekend Modern Eden Gallery welcomes us into the imagined experiences of two exciting new exhibitions, Mary Syring’s solo, The Reaper in the Meadow and group show, Danse Macabre.
With elements of melancholia and romanticism, these haunting collections let us dance into the creative mind of the artist. Riddled with elements that brush darkness with light, they occupy a space in our minds and we linger in the composition, style and individuality that blankets us with a conjuring sense of inspiration. Join Modern Eden Gallery this weekend for the opening reception that honours each beguiling body of work…and see what catches your eye.

Modern Eden is thrilled to welcome back gallery artist Mary Syring in her third major solo exhibition. Once again, Mary holds down the month of October with her signature style of pen and ink works. The Reaper in the Meadow is a new series in monochrome based on themes of Victorian nostalgia, folklore, costume, and ritual. Her beautiful and intricate works explore and revive ‘Memento Mori’ through a decorative lens of nostalgia. Adorned in vintage frames and scrollwork mats, each piece is more unique than the last. We hope you can join us on October 8 for a special reception with the artist.
Also opening October 8 is dark-art exhibition, Danse Macabre. An artistic genre of allegory in the Late Middle Ages, The Danse Macabre explores the personification of death, produced as memento mori to remind us of the fragility of life.
