#ART-O-RAMA plays overtime
If the ART-O-RAMA show is over, the exhibition of the participating galleries will be extended until September 15. This will be an opportunity to discover some of the highlights of current creation, including the superb work ofAnneke Eussen presented by the Tatiana Pieters Gallery in Ghent. The artist presents works from recovered materials with in particular a very sensitive and ambiguous relationship between minimalism, abstraction and glass cutting. Sculpture and painting are meticulously combined here in a subtle composition where the gesture tends to dissolve in the incidents of the raw material.
On a completely different register, Florian Schmidt of the Philipp von Rosen Gallery in Cologne, offers a reflection on the recycling of materials. The works play on the interstice of painting and sculpture from an architectural concept. The result is two-dimensional objects that emerge from previous work and are measured against the space in which they are exhibited.
The work of Jan Kiefer of the Union Pacific Gallery in London explore the concept that the image can support when it speaks to the unconscious of the values of a civilization. Thus when he paints “pinot blanc and pinot noir”, the artist is interested in the logics that shape our thinking and draws the thread of representation from the myth of the Greek painter Zeuxis that grapes were painted with such realism that birds came to pick them. But in the contemporary world, these images are more reminiscent of advertising and the artist ironically uses them to showcase the current mythologies of the European middle class based on consumption and the appearance of refinement
