If you happen to be in New York over the next few weeks, be sure to check out Enigmatic Visions, an exhibition at the Agora Gallery featuring Maltese artist Anna Galea. The exhibition opens July 28, 2017 and runs until August 17, 2017. Any art lover who enjoys thought-provoking artworks and meeting talented and interesting artists is encouraged to attend.
Enigmatic Visions is a new collective exhibition that is singular in its attention to the subtlety that can be found in contemporary art. While many equate progress with simply making the next piece bigger and louder, that is not the beginning and end of the state of today’s art landscape. Though the artists on display in Enigmatic Visions come from all corners of the globe, each brings out the magic in more modest concerns.
With watercolour or oil paint, Anna Galea observes plant life, laying leaves and petals on the canvas. Often, she honours the natural elegance of her subjects with attentive realism. Tranquil green hues hazily form into sunlight filtering through plants. Buds emerge from misty landscapes. Galea’s images reflect shifting focuses and the ethereal beauty of flora. Often shown with dramatic lighting that allows the artist to make the most of the semi-transparent plant structures, Galea’s subjects pulse with life, celebrating the harmony of light and colour.
Today, Anna Galea works from her Malta-based studio as well as from Dubai. Her watercolour work has been honoured as masterful both in the United States and abroad in Europe where as recently as spring of 2016 she was a featured master watercolour demonstrator at the International Watercolour Convention in Fabriano, Italy.
Anna Galea is one of the artists featured in both the online and print edition of indulge.com.mt’s Artists Directory, Volume I

The exhibition is open from Tuesdays to Saturdays from 11am to 6pm. And entrance is free. The gallery can be found on 530 West 25th St, Chelsea, New York
