Curator's Eye

Carina Wagenaar creates large-scale wall medallions that bridge the ancient world with the modern. Opulent and extravagant, Wagenaar’s works are at times reminiscent of luxurious jewellery or gilded armour, where exceptional attention to detail pulls the viewer into new worlds that continue to transform the further into the works you travel. Wagenaar's work presents an excellent opportunity for those looking to augment their collections of modern design with contemporary art.

‘Piece of the cake’ is a story about the victory and the celebration of this victory with the corresponding reward, the cutting of the cake.

This festive occasion is a victory. The swords represent a hard-won position that has been won. The ladybug on the cake represents great service. The arrow in the middle means that where has been thrown in bullseye, right into the star. In addition, the person was firmly in the saddle. On the sides, woman stand between the given flowers with their hands in the air, to celebrate. With a large wine glass above the head in which the stars are also present. Everything has been squeezed out (citrus press) and a cake can now be seen on this. At the bottom there is even more celebration going on. Woman are sitting and lying in the wine glasses, and one is putting a crown on her head. That symbolizes the crowning glory of the work. Everything has been smoothened out (iron) so the stars and diamonds can now shine. The feathers represent the capacity to more freely. The mouths are a symbol to empowerment and the tiger steps on the top represent the courageous steps that have been taken.

The star is shining at the stop with pics and card game, characters of a strategy game.
