Davide La Rocca - Strange Object
02.08.2008 - 03.18.2008
From February 8th on, Galerie Voss shows new works by Davide La Rocca.
Having until now excusively used film stills from David Cronenberg's movie "Existenz" as motifs for his works, he now extends his oevre by using new motifs as well as new techniques. Alongside his known paintings in different shades of gray, that are calculated by the computer and applied on the canvas point by point just like pixels on the screen, the exhibition „Strange Object" will show works, that are quite related to the principle of Op Art. Those works are consequently painted in black on white or white on black and combine abstract, optical paintings - the artist himself calls them "strange objects" - with portraits of people in everyday situations. Bit Davide La Rocca does not only rely on motifs that are to be found in every day's life. He arranged a great part of his new samples on the computer himself by combining digitalised picture components to collages. The quite technic way of painting underlines the in every sense fantastic choice of motif..
The exhibition will end on March 22nd.
