POLO GAME by Gabriela Herma
Following the programme of the art exhibitions in the main Hall of Palazzo Naiadi – The Dedica Anthology Hotels – Le Dame Art Gallery is delighted to present POLO GAME, a new exhibition by Gabriela Herma set from the 6th of September until the 8th of October 2018.
Gabriela’s work is characterized by an extremely long and fascinating process that allows the artist to transform a photo into a unique – one-of-a-kind – original work.
Herma’s photographs are printed onto metal and later supervened with resin and mixed materials such as Swarovski, broken mirrors and sparkle dust. Her photographs freeze moments of emotion and are brought to life by layering resin and reflective elements. Through this process, she injects a vitality and tangibility that invites us to step into the scene and experience first hand the moment Herma captured.
Gabriela Herma is a Polish Fine Art Photographer from Bielsko-Biala, Poland. Based in London, Herma’s work is inspired by her surroundings and led by her initial emotional response. Each of her photographs conceal a deeper meaning and emotion that she invites her viewers to explore. Encouraging us to see beyond what can be seen.
One of Herma’s most significant works is Guilia, 2015. Guilia is the depiction of a red dragonfly she met in Marbella, Spain in August 2015. The dragonfly flirted and interacted with Herma, as if she was silently requesting to be captured by her camera. The dragonfly is a symbol of transformation that encourages us to seek self-realisation and uncover the deeper meaning of life. Guilia is a representation of Herma’s internal growth and ability to see beyond the surface meaning of her subjects, a redline through her work.
POLO GAME is a bespoke project for Palazzo Naiadi – The Dedica Anthology set in occasion of the Longines Global Champion Tour in Rome.
