About the Artwork:
“From stony sleep it came; at last!
This silver shell on blackness of the past
this soul, silently curled into its change
and for millenia waiting for exchange.
I shall give it to those who want to see
its silent rise, its arival to eternity.
And what shall I receive? No more, no less
than memory of world which retrogress.”

About the Artist:
– Johannes Georg Riessler
Petra is a traditional printmaker and illustrator from Czech republic. Her story is one hidden in eternity, ready to tear open the cocoon of waiting and spread its still wet wings. For everything within this universe is positioned in almost tyrannical, symbolist harmony. The meticulous attention to detail combined with the unnamed feeling behind words, senses and meaning. Quiet, unmoving, perpetual gazing upon something charmingly familiar, yet strangely and deeply foreign. This is her poetry of monochrome – alien, ambiguous, disconnected from our expectations and challenging ordinary perception. Creatures humming silently, in their shattered words of dread and eeriness.
