Dear friends of the gallery,

the Lukas Feichtner gallery is pleased to present recent works of painter Ahmet Oran after successful years abroad.

We would like to invite you to the opening of this exhibition:

Ahmet Oran

Opening: February 28, 2008, 6 p.m.
February 29 - April 5, 2008

In the past three years Ahmet Oran has begun to rip open the skin of his paintings to bring the layers of paint resting below to light. In a perfectly planned action of deliverance he exposes the hidden layers to the view of the spectator.

What appears to be a archaic act of violence, turns out to be a deliberate revelation. Ahmet Oran shas begun to plan his abstract compositions on the virtual level of his computer to create new works out of the blow-up of existing paintings in a never ending circle of creativity. Like a scientist he transfers the virtual idea in the physical world of colour.

What starts with delicate cuts in iridescent layers of colour changes through the technique of blow-up into abstract patterns far from natural structures. For days and nights the painter endures to witness the perfekt degree of hardening of the colour and uses the brief moment to open the surface.
