“When studying a mathematical formula, we can all see a reflection of the same concept. When, however, it comes to art, the consistency of viewers’ interpretations divagates. They become unique, conditioned by an individualized past and future, set of beliefs and predispositions. Each of the elements comprising the exhibition demonstrates a different form of tension between background and figure, illustrating the (at times violent, merciless) clash between the void and the sign. The distinctive
character of works is emphasized and enhanced by the artist’s choice of materials: dark sections are coated with coarse bituminous paint, blue ones with a light gouache. Beholding this complex interplay of colors, textures, and shapes, we will, perhaps unconsciously, assign intentions, temperament, and stories to renderings, with every reading becoming one of idiosyncratic projection.”
