We got quite a lovely surprise this past weekend, when the truly exceptional artist SILAS MERLIN shared his romantic and elegantly beautiful Bouguereau Sculptures. Presently not for sale, these stunning pieces – each inspired by a special work of classical art – are available as GACHAs through 21 February at the very popular event The Chapter Four. In an exciting collaboration with The Chapter Four founder (the wonderful builder and creator lakua Arriaga), artist Silas Merlin (and his Silas Gallery), and Ce Soir Arts, these pieces are on special exhibit for the Valentine’s Month of February at Côte de la Mer Galerie.
Silas Merlin‘s work in pastels and sculpture is lovely and quite detailed. His eye for figures and shading is magnificent. His subjects are varied and presented in classic as well as unique settings, and he captures their spirit and beauty with each brushstroke or move of the sculptor’s hand. Indeed, his artistry with portraits is unparalleled.
Inara Pey prepared a lovely article about Silas and his portraiture and other pastels for her blog Living in a Modem World last year. You may access the posting here. Inara provides a sensitive look into the artist’s world, and you may visit his personal gallery at New Babbage here. Other exhibits are often available to visit as well, and we especially invite you to visit Ce Soir Arts to explore these lovely sculptures – and the sim.
Relax in the galerie and enjoy these stunning romantic sculptures from one of the most prolific and gifted of artists anywhere. These beautiful and meticulously executed pieces – nine in all – are a joy to behold! Come enjoy these lovely Valentine treasures at the serene Côte de la Mer Galerie through February. Happy Valentine’s Day!
