The display will function a complete of 21 works, for my part created by means of the 2 artists appositely for this instance, that may problem the exhibition identify by means of unleashing a number of ghostly artwork and abstraction stuffed warrior-like figures that may captivate and invite audience into an revel in that illuminates a vibrancy of colours and textures.
“Warriors and Ghosts” objectives to showcase distinctive tactics that immerse the viewer right into a chaotically imaginative global. Each artists create an implausible realm, populated by means of whimsical characters that mirror on infantile demeanor but additionally figuring out expressions within the type of solitude, creativeness, feelings, and connections. Peter Opheim’s oil artwork are home windows into an international of fanciful entropy, pushing obstacles by means of the novel and provocative juxtaposition of childlike inspirations with grownup ideas and feelings. Opheim first creates clay figures which can be without delay evident and enriched, then interprets his characters onto canvasses. His colourful clay collectible figurines embark his infantile fears which can be rooted in deformed frame portions, unnatural colours, like an archetypal concern that hides at the back of the innocence of the plot in fairy stories.
Adam Handler creates vividly aesthetic works that domesticate good looks by means of returning to the meant primal or basic beginnings, adopting a child-like taste, wondering our conceptions of and presumptions about our surrounding truth. Adam establishes his artwork at the ground leaning over the piece; it is a private and psychical revel in. Inside of those intimate confines he feels unfastened to experiment with new ideas. Lots of the tiny die-cut works on show constitute a purging of his ideas, passions, insecurities, nightmares and goals. Adam’s enthralling figures evoke kawaii, Japan’s tradition of cuteness, floating in extremely patterned, kaleidoscopic environments. But, in addition they level towards our interior craving for the uncooked emotional states of formative years. Handler’s artwork are in the end maximalist odes to the creativeness, populated with psychedelic gardens and surreal spirits.
