The theme of the exhibition is color in abstract painting today.
Dennis Hollingsworth is internationally recognized for his three-dimensional work on paint and substrates. For more than thirty years he has sought to enrich, expand, paint with paint implants. Within the limits of the tension of what a canvas can bear as a material, he invented a lexicon of shapes that are as many stamps including spiny balls, recesses, spray paintings, imprints, orange peel effects, images of nature, texts and images of broken screens.
Dennis Hollingsworth was born in Madrid in 1956. He lives and works in New York, NY, USA and Tossa de Mar, Spain. In 1963, at the age of thirteen, he visited the Prado Museum and his encounter with Goya’s painting «Saturn devouring one of his sons» was the trigger of his vocation as a painter. Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, Kansas, Akron Museum, Ohio, Akzo Nobel Collection, Amsterdam, Netherlands, Riera Roura Collection, Spain.
Thick blocks of acrylic in three dimensions, deposits of light traces of large brushes and their superpositions, airbrush shaver, Rémy Hysbergue multiplies the techniques of painting (Rémy Hysbergue likes to say that he paints the painting) with an unparalleled dexterity. He brings with the light and the material impressions of superimposed spaces all fictional in his paintings on velvet.
Rémy Hysbergue was born in Valenciennes in 1967 and lives and works in Paris. He participated in the collective exhibition «Painting: deprogrammed obsolescence» at the Musée d’art moderne et contemporain des Sables d’Olonne in 2021 and the exhibition «Painting: deprogrammed obsolescence – free licenses» at the Musée d’art de l’Hospice Saint-Roch in Issoudun in 2022, as well as at the L/H art centre of the Headquarters in Valenciennes.
Rémy Hysbergue’s works are in the collections of the Fonds National d’Art Contemporain, Paris, Fonds Muncipal d’Art Contemporain, Paris, FRAC Auvergne, FRAC Poitou-Charentes, Musée des Beaux-Arts d’Angers, Musée Ohara, Japan, and the Société Générale collection.
Kim Young-Hun is inspired by a traditional Hyukpil Corenone painting technique that consists of using a single layer of oil paint with a large brush covered in several colours, and this in a single continuous gesture. Each tremor of the hand becomes a definitive trace. Kim Young-Hun applies ancestral techniques of Korean painting to represent abstract images inspired by disturbances of digital screens. By using both the painter’s classic colour palette and the hyper-saturated digital screens, he brings a testimony of the mental and visual universe of a generation passed from an analog to digital world..
Kim Young-Hun (born in 1964 in Nonsan, South Korea) lives and works in New York and Seoul. He graduated from Chelsea College of Art and Design and Goldsmiths College in London.
His paintings are featured in the collections of Art Bank-National Contemporary Art Museum, Seoul, Government Art Bank-National Contemporary Art Museum, Seoul, Bank of America, New York, The Arts Club, London, Zaha Museum, Seoul, Sung-kok Art Museum, Seoul, Samsung Museum of Art Leeum, Seoul, Kolon Group, Seoul, and Koex Kimchi Museum, Seoul.
