LOVE, DEATH & VELVET
SO GLAM SO WILD
As Glam as wild, eccentric materials with a clear provocative statement are confronted with what would be a wild and ancestral tale of fables, myths and primordial rites encapsulated in their essence and fullness. As eternal and true as the rose that never withers within its crystal bell, can we encapsulate all that she means to us?
In Ant Hamlyn’s yellow brick road, we find a reality full of metaphors and meanings reproduced through the materiality that characterizes it. In a constant search to capture the essence of life, we catch the romantic death in a free but also rebellious way. We move away from the classic as did the artists of romanticism and the “artistic self” creates a world full of fantasy, where under the contemporary idea of the aesthetics of impact, underlies the deepest part of our psyche.
The irresistible beauty of some flowers antagonizes with their powerful darkness in a dance of perpetual seduction. Temptation and poison coexist embraced in the work itself, which shines as a prisoner in its maximum splendor.
It is in this contemporary tale of myths and legends, in this intersection of life and death, its velvety wild strawberries remind us that they were born from the tears of Aphrodite and the metamorphosis of a broken heart, ends up turning a nymph into a sunflower full of hope.
Eclectic and sophisticated, Ant Hamlyn narrates an innocent but persuasive “he loves me – he loves me not” of folklore and popular beliefs where real love only appears if you are able to turn the bell. Will we be able to achieve it?
