ABSTRACT vs OPTICAL 2 | Virtual Exhibition

CLICK HERE FOR THE VIRTUAL SHOW!

 

Abstract vs Optical, a journey started one year ago on some unspoiled Indonesian environment, redirecting myself to Singapore and Philippines, eventually leading me back to the place where I first encountered the most sincere art of the nineties (second disclaimer: the country that follows will cause mixed feelings): China. 

 

Exploring studios. 

Visiting independent art spaces. 

Walking through alleys.

Debating with old and new friends at old and new cafes.

 

Tasting traditional food whose flavor reminds you of the last time you had it, suggesting new directions, though.

Nor China nor any country gathered under the acronym S.E.A. has ever expressed a so coherent research in art around the absence of any formal shapes. Even through their darkest times, those lands have never challenged their audience with a so explicit lack of formal reference. Not until now. Therefore, the aim of thisshow is to evidence suchbooming of abstraction inregionswhere this practice hasn’t been the general rule yet.

On one hand, the new generation of artists is quite involved in this kind of painting; on the other hand, many mid-career artists are leaving Figurativism behind. 

 

They are all strongly involved in experimenting new and innovative way of expressing themselves. Questioning their own position in the world, they start from hearth-felt topics, follow unpredictable directions and get to surprising solutions. How difficult it is to understand in a direct manner that a brushstroke truly is the visual consequence of an inner instinct. 

Abstract Vs Optical doesn’t want to oppose, rather bring together (finally something very sympathetic with the moment). Bring together ideas, feelings, actions, artists generations.
