Art Renewal Center Salon Article

The Art Renewal Center is accepting preorders for its annual catalog detailing the winners of the 2012/2013 ARC Salon. Kara Ross of the ARC also just published an article about the winning entries.

Swedish artist Nick Alm win first place in the figurative category for his painting "Two Lovers," showing a woman in the embrace of a statue of Poseidon.

About the painting Alm said, “It is said that in ancient times women had a different relationship to sculptures, as they perceived them as embodiments of real entities. With this phenomenon in mind I wanted to tell a story of a girl, starved of love and human contact, so desperate as to turn to a sculpture for intimacy: it’s tragic and beautiful at the same time."
