ONCE IN A GREAT WHILE Artist Laurel Holloman leaves Luartfan SPEECHLESS!!!!! freefallingprofilepicture copyright ~ miki turner

 ALL THE WORLD INSIDE EXHIBITION is currently underway in Berlin, Germany with 16 huge murals being presented for showing. Nine new paintings and seven from the artist’s Free Falling Collection.

The exhibition officially opened to the public on April 28th and will run through June 23rd, 2013. Opening hours will be from 10am – 6pm.  Closed on Mondays with free entrance.

Just as I imagined prior to the opening of ALL THE WORLD INSIDE EXHIBITION and the unveiling of the artist’s sixteen magnificent masterpieces. I knew  the Palazzo-Italia would undergo a beautiful, physical transformation once the sixteen paintings were hung upon the walls. There is no doubt the paintings will continue to echo their presence long after they are gone in June of this year.

Today however, while each painting quietly hangs upon the walls of the Palazzo-Italia separately and yet together, they allow us a glimpse of the inner soul that currently resides within the artist. 

Leaving you to discover the hidden meaning from their titles and maybe if you are fortunate and  look hard enough, long enough you will discover a  small resemblance of yourself…..

One thing is for certain….each painting leaves us inspired, breathless and speechless.

Just like their creator.

The one, the only….. Artist Laurel Holloman.

Starting May 30th to September 30th 2013 in Venice, Italy, one of Holloman’s paintings titled “SWELL” will be apart of a group show located in the Venice Biennale called  NELL’ ACQUA CAPISCO (In The Water I Understand) curated by Claudio Libero Pisano. http://www.nonsolocinema.com/Nell-acqua-capisco_27850.html  http://www.myartguides.com/venice-art-biennale-2013/art-biennale/collateral-events/item/577-nellacqua-capisco

On March 12th Miki Turner an award-winning photojournalist (http://mikiphotogallery.com) and author of the newly released book “Journey To The Woman I’ve Come To Love” (http://www.mikiphotola.blogspot.com )/ openly congratulated Holloman for her recent honor of having one her paintings “SWELL” being accepted in the Venice Biennale. Turner (@mikiturner, twitter username) quoted in an open public tweet that reads as follows: “congrats to my sistahgurl @nalamommy (Holloman’s twitter username) for getting into the Venice Biennale! it’s a tremendous accomplishment for a deserving talent!”

Personally I couldn’t agree more with Turner’s comments and so this is why I chose to add it to this post. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE ARTIST!
