September 3rd - September 26th
Are you ready? This September, Eliyah Qureshi's art work will be exhibited at Valentines Mansion within the scenic location of Valentines park ! The mansion will exhibit the series In Search of Gold. Original works of art will be available to purchase as well as prints of the original works.
In Search of Gold consists of finely sketched portraitures accentuated with heavy strokes of gold acrylic and black ink. Strands of liquid gold seep out from the bodies of bees. Bees are miracle carriers, the birds of the muses. Their life sustaining qualities are not only essential to Mother Earth but to humankind. Those who suffer from the incurable can find a cure in Manuka Honey, liquid gold. The value of the bee has flown high in mainstream society with the introduction of medicinal honey. Bees have been a symbol of feminine beauty since Aphrodite but still carry a protective sting. Their power over life is paradoxical in nature.
