Ahoy! I have a little break here but I was painting. I can say that even a lot because I had to prep a set of paintings for the exhibition of blackthings in Gauntlet Gallery in San Francisco will open on 7th November In a few days I will say about this show something more but for today I want to show you some new
BLACKSKETCHES 064, 065 and 066
and finally I realised that those sketches had to be cheaper, I really don't want so much to collect them in my studio so from now this serie of sketches with blackthing will be for 28.88 pounds
I didn't have time to write more. It's a bit silly that it's my first exhibition of BLACKTHINGS, it's very important for me and I don't have time to write here about it. but just a few hours before it finally will happen I'm posting it here! ; ) and simply - thanks for a lot of your appreciation!
Here are some words from Gauntlet Gallery & svenman Davis:
Gauntlet Gallery is proud to present two geometrically inclined exhibitions for the month of November; NeoGeo is a two-person exhibition featuring Carl Cashmanand Liam Snootle in the gallery 1 space, and BlackThings; a solo exhibition by Parasite in gallery 2. Both exhibitions are guest curated by Sven Davis.
NEO GEO NeoGeo is an exploration of color and form. A new expression of geometric art by UK based Carl Cashman and Australian Liam Snootle. With roots and inspiration from within the culture of street art and graffiti, these contemporary provocateurs have defined an energetic new movement borne out of an appreciation for geometry, emotion and historical art movements of the past.
BlackThings Poland-based artist Parasite’s series of BlackThings paintings utilize found & existing paintings and prints as a canvas where traditional works are over-painted with brutal geometries. The original context of the source paintings are changed and subverted with distorted volumes and masses of anti-image to create a new vocabulary. Portions of the original image are retained by Parasite as he plays with our sense of perception – depth and dimension present a renewed allegory that emphasizes unfamiliar details within the framing of the existing image. Parasite distorts stories originally told by the like of Caspar David Friedrich, Egon Schiele, Maurice Utrillo, Paul Gauguin amongst others; and lends a new angle to abstraction within the setting of traditional portrait and landscape painting. All three artists are firmly grounded in a contemporary gallery context, and have a flair for eliciting their art in an urban setting.
