Gallery Sonja Roesch presents ‘Gold Rush’, an exhibition featuring works that are gold in color by Dirk Rathke, Jonathan Leach, Ariane Roesch, Myke Venable.
A gold rush is a discovery of gold that brings an onrush of miners seeking their fortune. Gold rushes were typically marked by a general buoyant feeling of a “free-for-all” in income mobility, in which any single individual might become abundantly wealthy almost instantly. They occurred as early as the times of the Roman Empire, and further back in ancient Egypt.
Gold, both color and material, stands for excellence, beautiful, successful, prosperous, security. It is both the color of reverence and the revered itself. All artists in the exhibition have a focus on reductive, concept-based art.
