GERHARDT BRAUN GALLERY PLAÇA CHOPIN - Plaça Frederic Chopin 2
"UNDER THE INFLUENCE" is an exhibition that personifies everyday scenes from the past where we can observe crowds of people, feeling that they belong to a group or that they are part of something. In the exhibition we can observe a dialogue that talks about the fear of freedom, a disguised freedom, about the hidden face of social networks and how they have damaged communication, thus being a redundancy.
Through reflection and judgement, it sets out the idea that the artist's duty is to manifest all those sensations and impressions that society reveals.
Finally, in this collection the artist applies a much more relaxed aesthetic than in her previous works. Now, drawing and painting her characters contains the idea of perfection in faces and bodies, she allows herself to be guided by the simplicity of traits and forms, opening the way to a much more naive and overstated aesthetic.
The idea of the concept as the content of the work gains strength over its own containment. As a result, it opens the way to questions made up of colorful scenes traced with thread, a recurring technique of the artist.
Questions such as: What is true freedom? Are we facing the moment of the beginning of dehumanization? Are we being perhaps contemporary narcissists? Questions that the artist exposes by way an introspection, through comic and witty situations, filled with colors, emotions and instants with the only purpose of shocking towards a much more ideal and utopian horizon.
The opening will take place on Friday October 29th at 7 p.m. at the Gerhardt Braun Gallery at
Plaça Frederic Chopin 2, 07001 Palma
