GREEN BLOOD: Dorothy Circus Rome | Group Show

14 Jun - 20 Jul 2012
The green blood of nature differs from ours only for an atom, magnesium instead of iron. Twins of the trees and dependent upon each other. One ancestral link led to the development of the core mystical doctrines concerning the secret aspect of creation. The tree has always been used as a symbol of life. In the Kabbalah is the program according to which there was the creation of the world, and the path of descent along which the souls and creatures have reached their present form. It is also the path slope, through which the entire creation can return to the goal which we all long: the unity of the “womb of the Creator.” “Tree of Life” is the “Jacob’s Ladder” (Genesis 28), whose base is resting on the ground and its top touches the sky. By trees, reminiscent of the ancient blood pact, by the green blood creatures, the artists of the Green Blood are inspired, involving the nature in its entirety and representing its entities through a surrealistic painting. 
The Green Blood show, curated by Alexandra Mazzanti with New York artist Tara McPherson, features twenty-three international artists from the Neo Surrealist scene: Tara McPherson, Jeff Soto, Martin Wittfooth, Travis Louie, Lola, Brandi Milne, Leila Ataya, Nicoletta Ceccoli, Roland Tamayo, Ana Bagayan, Scott Musgrove, Yosuke Ueno, Sergio Mora, Dave Cooper, Paolo Guido, Afan, Alessia Iannetti, Anastasia Kurakina, Kathie Olivas, Brandt Peters, Ixie Darkonn, Mr Klevra and Corine Perier.
The artists will participate to the exhibition that will take place on June 14th 2012 at Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome, each with a brand new artwork composed on the Green Blood theme. 
50% of the proceeds from sales will be donated to Greenpeace.
“To be able to collaborate on ideas and join forces within the concept of the ‘Green Blood’ of nature is a very special opportunity for us as artists. To show, along with the visual allure, how powerful our content and message can be within our art works.
To support our planet and those who are working to make it a better safer place, and to charities with wonderful causes. These are the reasons I am so excited to be a part of this exhibition. I feel it’s a very important aspect, even a responsibility, of being an artist; to have a voice that speaks positively to the public and to give back to the planet for important causes. I am so happy to be working along side you for this great show.”
