Victorian era design and technology blends in seamlessly with themes of a futuristic world straight out of science fiction in this art exhibition at Janus Gallery II.
Steampunk was originally a literary genre. Jules Verne and H.G.Wells are popularly considered to be some of the first writers of this genre. Over the past few decades, steampunk spread over to movies and eventually made its way into art. This spectacular exhibition by Isabel Hermano is a glimpse into this rarely-seen steampunk world. In her works, Isabel often incorporates metal parts from the Victorian era into jewelry, sculptures, furniture and sometimes even into living beings.
A board placed within the gallery building defines a Steampunk world as “What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner“. And Isabel’s works are a testament to that. The fashion, design and technology in the paintings is Victorian and has been merged with some futuristic elements. One can see elaborate contraptions, retro tones and fantastical creations in the works of art showcased here. Isabel’s steampunk world feels real because it comes from a place of truth. It combines old-school romance and elegance with sophisticated, visible machinery in places to great effect.
“Living in a Steampunk World” by Isabel Hermano is housed at the Janus Gallery II, Sinful Retreat and is open for viewing. Click HERE to visit this exhibition inworld.
