The One and The Other 2014

MARTA OSOWSKA PERSSON

The One and  The Other 2014

I approach different gestures and tactile and haptic games. Through a merging of the banal and the forbidden I open up ways to see new perspectives on the depicted act and what is inherent to it. Simultaneously, my paintings are also a way of depicting a multilayered curiosity regarding the body and the flesh. It is an ongoing exploration of inherited human behaviours, embedded mechanisms and embodied expression.

Imagine a “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” type situation where a young punk rock kid from Brooklyn finds himself time traveling back to 17th century Holland and stumbles into the painting studio of one of the classic Dutch Masters. Accepting this odd twist of fate, he dutifully studies the teachings and techniques of his mentor and eventually breaks out on his own, painting images of his earlier life in the future. Pure fiction perhaps, but the result is all real. Dan Witz has been painting just such work in his New York studio for decades. Masterfully composed scenes of epic mosh pits pieced together from reference photos take by the artist himself at punk-rock shows are painted with the detail and delicacy he cultivated during his studies as a classical painter.

Rino Stefano Tagliafierro is an Italian experimental animator and director based in Milan. His output includes music videos and fashion videos. In addition to collaborating with teams and video artists creating interactive video projections for exhibitions, museums and special events, he has participated in many festivals and competitions, and has received numerous international awards in recognition of his work.
