From February until April both my paintings Organic Geometry # 4 and #5 were shown in a group exhibition in Hamburg. Even though they are number 4 and number 5, they for me are the essence of this series. And i came to realize that when i was hanging my all of my paintings one sunny sunday next to each other – these two stuck with me! It is the way the colors just go together perfectly, the black elements seemingly ending in the one and starting anew in the other. Also the way their bodies are turned to each other. I just had to exhibit them as a pair!
Now imagine these two are meeting their counterparts. Not as in a similar style or even subject, since one of the paintings of my fellow exhibiting artist Doménico CV Talarico was even depicting only a womens feet, elegant red shoes tangling from them. No, not similar on the surface – it was the essence of them that was working together. As my paintings were made for each other, so were these two.
One more dark and one more light in color they both held their ground while supporting each other. That moment i realize i am talking about paintings as if they were people i also realize that they kind of are – or at least they are referencing real or symbolic persons from the past. So here is to paintings with personality – that just accompany each other for a while.
