Orbeliani Square, Tbilisi, Georgia
Moving Gallery by Artbeat in the frame of ‘Caravan’ project presents Nino Sakandzelidze's solo exhibition, 'Eight Canvases, Two Days'.
Attack the canvas
Chance and happening
The canvas dictates
Like in life
It’s not so philosophical
Dialogue with canvas
Contrast and tension
Body marked with paint
Its closer to you
You interact with it
Morphology of space as a result of the painting
When it becomes 3d it becomes closer to us
Eight Canvases, Two Days
It’s not so philoshical
Producing paintings is a process of wholeness – the whole involvement of the painter in a provocative dialogue with canvas. This dialogue, as any, is left to chance and open to fluctuations, contrast, and tension; sometimes manifesting as a relentless attack on the canvas and leaving the body of the painter ‘wounded’ with paint marks.
Directing movement, the direction of walk around paintings as objects in space (and as space), make the experience of tension and contrast proximate. To interact with the paintings as a morphology of space means drawing the viewer into a dynamic encounter.
The confrontation of painter with canvas, and then viewer with canvas, is like any happening in life, like any dialogue. It’s not so philosophical.
