Cube Gallery, hosts the new work of the artist Brendan Kelly, in his solo exhibition entitled “Within”. The exhibition includes paintings which are in a special interest because they had created by an Irish artist, with an important career in the contemporary art, who have inspired from beauty and harmony, as one can only meet them in Greek art.

Brendan Kelly writes about “Within”: “Painting is an act of faith; a belief that a brushstroke or a colour applied will inevitably lead to the following mark. The act of creation is a continuous dialogue between reason and emotion, between planning and spontaneity, order and controlled chaos.

My recent paintings are inspired by Mediterranean culture, in particular classical Greek concepts of beauty and harmony. In all works of art there is an underlying structure based on geometrical systems and hidden codes. The existence of this hidden language fascinates me; it is a language of signs, ciphers and formulae, a language passed down from master to apprentice. One sees it in buildings such as the Parthenon, whose façade corresponds to the famous ‘golden section’, and in marks left by master masons in great stone constructions.

My exhibition comprises three series of paintings, each varying in scale; one series inspired by the human form, another by the geometry and ‘hidden’ codes intrinsic to all built structures, and a final series where I use a more poetic and expressive approach to the concept of ‘layering’, a metaphor for time.

The exhibition is entitled “Within”, inviting the viewer to consider more than just the surface of the works, to always look beyond and delight in the unexpected.”.

Masks and the Oceanic

Masks and the Oceanic is the latest solo show by Alexis Vasilikos that deals with two juxtaposing realities. On one hand Masks is a series of highly processed abstract photographic works, a series of meta-images that stand between traditional analogue photograms and abstract painting. They are composed by photographic material such as glitches, scratches, noise or light. Textures that usually photographers remove when editing the images and are
usually seen as imperfections or waste become here the primary material for these highly abstracted photo paintings.

On the other hand the Oceanic series is a series of heavily manipulated images of landscapes that are referencing to Romanticism and revolve around the idea of the oceanic feeling, a phrase coined by Romain Rolland to refer to the sensation of being one with the universe.
