Sparkle of Nature, a new exhibition by Gabriela Herma at the Albufera
Le Dame Art Gallery at the Meliá White House are proud to present “Sparkle of Nature”, a new exhibition by Fine Art Photographer Gabriela Herma hosted at the L’Albufera.
Born in Bielsko-Biala, Poland and based in London, Herma’s work is inspired by her surroundings and led by her initial emotional response. Each of her photographs conceal a deeper meaning and emotion that she invites her viewers to explore. Encouraging us to see beyond what can be seen.
Herma’s photographs are printed onto metal and later supervened with resin and mixed materials such as Swarovski, broken mirrors and sparkle dust. Her photographs freeze moments of emotion and are brought to life by layering resin and reflective elements. Through this process, she injects a vitality and tangibility that invites us to step into the scene and experience firsthand the moment Herma captured.
One of Herma’s most significant works is Guilia, 2015. Guilia is the depiction of a red dragonfly she met in Marbella, Spain in August 2015. The dragonfly flirted and interacted with Herma, as if she was silently requesting to be captured by her camera. The dragonfly is a symbol of transformation that encourages us to seek self-realisation and uncover the deeper meaning of life. Guilia is a representation of Herma’s internal growth and ability to see beyond the surface meaning of her subjects, a redline through her work.
Violet, supporting The Circle. Bid now on ChairityStars.com
One of the work on exhibition is “Violet”, which most represents the depiction of passion for the artist. It is indeed the color symbolizing this feeling that Herma presents on a black background – black representing the darkness of the night.
Passion is as fragile as a flower, even being so beautiful. Without the right nourishment it can wither very easily.
Take home this incredible artwork, the proceeds will support the Circle, a charity helping women around the world.
