I was both surprised and happy when I was contacted a few weeks ago by the city art gallery of Viroflay, a charming small town in the suburbs of Paris, not too far from where I live. Actually, they had only seen a single image of mine in the catalogue
of another contemporary art exhibition I participated in last year and I had been recommended by one of the curators. They said they wanted me to show a couple of pieces in their annual contemporary art show, along with about 20 other artists, fantastic news!
Here is the poster of the show that will take place from May 12th to June 16thViroflay news site
The other good news is that they fell in love with my new 3D fractal sculptures, and 3 of them will be exhibited and they have insisted that I write some text to explain the techniques of fractal art and 3D printing. There will be 3 large paintings too, and we also have some other ideas for other exhibitions on futuristic topics
These are the images that will be shown:
And the 3D printed sculptures: (the last image below is an unfinished version of the actual sculpture)
This proves that with patience, perseverance and innovation, fractal art can slowly penetrate new grounds, it's a mix of work, luck and finding some key sponsors.
Edit: here is the picture of the 3 sculptures on site:
