PRIVATE COLLECTION CARNIVAL : Dorothy Circus Rome | Group Show

11 - 20 Feb 2011
Dorothy Circus Gallery, on the occasion of the inauguration of its new venue in in Via dei Pettinari 76, Rome, which will occur on the 12th of February 2011 at 18:30 with the Event “Private Collection Carnival”, brings back to the Contemporary Art scene the exhibition “Pop Surrealism”, which took place very successfully at the Carandente Museum in Spoleto from June 26th to October 15th, 2010.
The show will feature works by some of the most important artists of the international Pop Surrealist movement. Among them, various famous leaders and icons of the same movement will be present: Mark Ryden, Joe Sorren, Marion Peck, Alex Gross Camille Rose Garcia, Ron English, Colin & Sas Christian, Kris Lewis, Ray Caesar, Jeff Soto, Travis Louie, David Stoupakis, Adam Wallacavage, Tara McPherson, MissVan, Lola, Nicoletta Ceccoli, Esao Andrews, Scott Musgrove, Jonathan Viner, Kathie Olivas, Natalie Shau, Mijn Schat, Michael Page, Tim McCormick, Nathan Spoor, Paul Chatem, Ken Keirns, Ahren Hertel, Leila Ataya, Aaron Jasinski, Niba.
Through more than 50 works, we move through the flow of a surreal narrative with the meticulous perspective framing, which draws from the classical painting technique, but that is turned to the individual and intimate landscape matrices.
Perfectly in harmony with the Surrealist roots of the thirties, the figurative prophecies of Pop art regenerate in a constant movement between the recording of the real and the immediate dreamlike reworking.
It then reveals us a new world somewhere between reality and dream, where girls with large eyes and slender bodies hide arcane secrets and helpless and sad demons play with monsters – still puppies in atmospheres suspended, where everything looks like the real but transcends it, telling of a new and ancient mythology. 
Dorothy Circus Gallery, already creator of a space on the border between New York and Wonderland since 2007, has the merit of bringing for the first time on the scenes of Contemporary Italian Art artists such as Jonathan Viner, Ron English, Colin & Sas Christian, Camille Rose Garcia, Alex Gross, Joe Sorren, Tara McPherson, James Jean, Travis Louie, and many others. This time, the Gallery raises the curtains on its new program dedicated to new trends and Pop Surrealism, one of the most vital and exciting movements of recent times.
D.C.G. confirms itself as the ideal location to host the surreal mood of this fascinating Art, even more attractive thanks to its new venue in the heart of Rome. While preserving the magic of his “First Circus” style, this new space adds a touch of luxury with its Art Bookshop dressed in white velvet, made unique by the selection of limited edition prints and the rarest Art Toys, devoting to the exhibition hall a scene that takes us to a Tim-Burton-like Alice world.
