In January, NY Coo Gallery will hold the exhibition ”Fantasy Land” by Florence Wint and a group exhibition of Japanese artists curated by Fugetsusha Gallery.
1) Florence Wint “Fantasy Land”
"Fantasy Land" covers Wint’s various works spanning over forty years, featuring sculpture, woodcut print, and collage.
Wint's career as a professional artist began with sculptures created from objects she found discarded on the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan. Over time, her sculptures have evolved to incorporate colorful woodcut prints. Although these prints depict current events and subjects of concern to her, they often take on a whimsical nature and playfulness.
"Creating art has been my only goal in life that has given me strength and a strong will to live and a happiness that nothing can replace. Television, computers and all these new fascinating things do not give me the satisfaction I get in creating art. I like my work to tell a story. Each piece will take you on an unpredictable journey of fantasy, humor and color. In each creation, I wish to bring a genuine insight to the viewer and show an appreciation for nature and life itself."
