Catch by the Eye, Save in the Heart. The title is supposed to say it all - a little
clumsy, perhaps not the most elegant grammar and a tad self-conscious. But if you
can see beyond the words and capture the meaning then perhaps the exhibition is for
“Catch by the Eye, Save in the Heart” is the title of a series of exhibitions organized
by Magdalena and held in London from 2004 to the present day.
Magdalena conceived of the idea to combine established artists with a select few
artists new to exhibiting, based on their vision and appetite for inspiration. Each
event has also featured a prominent blank canvass, for artists and visitors alike
to record their moments of inspiration based on the location and artistic environment.
In May 2008, after the Mayfair exhibition, Magdalena wrote:
“The collection took in a confluence of styles, influences, cultures and mediums,
each disparate and self-supporting yet somehow, impossibly, complimentary and entirely
at home on the walls of Artspace-Galleries.
Truth be told we were probably more like The Osbournes than The Waltons, but like
a family it just worked, greater than the sum of its parts. (That was suppposed
to be a heartfelt compliment, by the way!)”
