END FAMILY is the inscription on a grave that Christina Dimitriadis photographed in a Berlin cemetery. The title of this extensive series of small-format canvases – collages,, all with a reduced palette, ironed onto them using t-shirt transfer film – is already a playful indication of its thematic range: at first glance, it is only a bizarre coincidence. One almost has to force oneself not to add the word “of” that is apparently missing between “End” and “Family”, until one realises it is only a matter of the family’s name. The artist plays with precisely this subtle ambivalence between the tragedy of private destiny on the one hand and the lapidary nature of everyday found objects and their aesthetics on the other. The individual motif develops into a poetic cipher of a very personal life; a self-reference on the basis of the real object. Things and situations are independent of the places where they can be found or take place. They question the unfamiliar and unmask the constant search for a reliable home. ~ Anne Haun

Hiro Yamagata : ‘Transient’ Series (Mixed Media)

::

This new series, Transient, is a tour de force that celebrates the cosmic dance between tectonic forces and frail temporal overlays in a dizzying and cinematic symphony of monotones. This series ensures this kaleidoscopic artist will maintain his place at the forefront of the visual avant garde. [Ex – Bill Lowe]

Japanese-American artist Hiro Yamagata marks a dramatic shift in aesthetic in his new series titled Transient. Known through the eighties and nineties as a master of Pop spectacle, Yamagata transforms his passion for dialogue between macrocosmic and microcosmic considerations into a distinctly new pictorial domain. The result is a profoundly introspective examination of the collective and individual psychic template. This interface is depicted in hauntingly beautiful works done in black and white on hand-made rice paper attached to canvas. Often monumental in scale, these works convey a sense of timelessness and impart an isolation that is both compelling and forbidding. This series speaks to the issue of time, place and perspective while its elements insinuate an unfolding apocalyptic splendor which lies just beneath or above our dimension. A global force in contemporary art for over thirty years, Yamagata stakes a claim in new philosophical terrain with this historic series of somber abstractions. The work calls upon his rich heritage and imbues it with his visionary grasp of the metaphysical and the spiritual. He couples this with an exacting mastery of technique and media to great theatrical effect. BL

“These collected bodies of work trace a journey from more to less control. A growing sense of the futility of manipulating materials to expressive content, consciously set me on this path. I enjoy constructing compositional processes that give me surprising results when they run their course. While painting I try to sustain a state of tension between knowing what I’m doing and being lost. I’m free to reject the efforts that don’t sustain my attention, as every attempt pushes the boundaries of a self imposed system. It provides the incentive to try again, as any gambler would play more than one card.”

Norbert Frensch’s paintings do not merely record what is to be seen. The fact that the viewer finds orientation only gradually, very slowly recognising the outline of a bowl bathed in pale light against the dark background, beginning to sense the presence of a volume, is trivial in and on itself. The point is not the object itself. What appears to the eye is merely the point of departure for an unusual kind of painting that articulates the process of becoming visible. By concealing what appears but revealing how something appears, painting transforms itself from a mode of depiction to a form of art that visibly reflects upon what it brings forth itself. [Extract : Thomas Wagner : catalogue Wiesbaden, 2002, pp50]
