Return to W139

There is something incredibly satisfying about witnessing glimpses into the process of art. The ambiguity you experience; the skepticism that comes with ambitious works; the vulnerability of a work exposed half finished; it all contributes to the magic and integrity of art itself.
Another trip to Amsterdam afforded me just this chance, while once again visiting Gallery W139. The exhibition I had previously seen, in-progress, was now in full swing.

It was really a beautiful show in all; I could have easily spent hours with each piece. The overall impact of a floor to ceiling mural-sized exhibition was breath-taking.
Here are some pictures of Doktor Faustus in its entirety:
