Nicole Gnesa Gallery with Philip Grözinger at Parallel
We love art, I guess you can see that. There are days when we fall in love hard. This happened at this year's Parallel Art Fair. We entered the dark walled space of Nicole Gnesas' room. There hung the artworks of artist Philip Goezinger. It's such an incredible feeling to see artwork you want to have. You want to see it over and over again, you want to know who is behind it and take that beautiful large piece off the wall and run. I didn't. Instead I had the chance to meet the lovely Gallerist Nicole and have since connected virtually with the artist Philip Goezinger and feel very lucky to have done so. Enjoy!
Vienna is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Sometimes you forget just how impressive it is when you are going on with daily life. We always look forward to city walks combined with an artistic program. The gallery festival "curated by" is one of our favorites. We sit excitedly before maps of Vienna, drawing with red pencils the paths we will take, connecting the dots between the Galleries, planning to get lost on the way.
