KHRŌMA

17th July – 13th November 2020

The exhibition “Khrōma” will feature works by Johan Deckmann, Amir H Fallah, Bella Foster and Wendy White.
The processes of industrialization have narrowed our experiences of color. This group show explores how we can let colors breathe again and look at them in a more intimate and personal way, experiencing different palettes of colors and ways of expression in each single artist. The idea of the “Khrōma” having a relevant presence on the space allows the viewer to understand diversity of language interpretations. Johan Deckmann (Copenhagen, Denmark, 1976) body of work delves not the complexities of life, using and re-using books that he painted onto fictional self-help books, bringing a hybrid between paintings, poetry and physiology. Linking life with intimacy is as well the core theme in Los Angeles-based Bella Foster (Los Angeles, EEUU, 1985) artist that creates dreamy, alluring paintings of real and imagined domestic interiors and still life arrangements. Not far from Wendy White (Deep River, Connecticut, EEUU, 1971) paintings that can be two or three dimensions, exchanging and playing with color and structures. Paintings in which color, edge, gesture and fractures are influenced by spontaneity and the everyday life. Amir H Fallah (Tehran, Iran, 1979) crates scenographic ambiences where combines visual vocabularies of painting and collage with elements of installation to deconstruct material modes of identity formation. Positioning the human in the center of his body of works, using an experienced palette of colors and textures. Colors and geometry that conclude this exhibition make us remember the theories of Johannes Itten when the color relied on his personal experience.
