About the show
“Leaving a clear optical message to the viewer, picking up the early avantgarde thoughts of the deconstruction of shapes and geometry, filtering colors until they appear in their purest form the artist’s works do not only reflect but also advance several 20th century art movements from early constructivism to pop-art related styles. It is the ‘innocence of the eye’, a term used by Ernst Gombrich to describe that whenever we look at a figurative painting our view is dependent on prior knowledge and therefore not ‘innocent’. This is not the case when we look at non-figurative artworks that come in shapes we cannot relate to. Working with various different materials the artists also create tension trough out all dimensions. From balancing and energizing the canvas with the anti-colors black and white, over experimenting with pure colors and shapes, to leaving the canvas completely – and entering the 3rd dimension by creating abstract installations, the artists present a wide range of what is possible in non-figurative art”.
