PINK–ME–UPS!

June 24, 2015 by Mary

From Monday 22nd June till Monday 7th September 2015, The Old Brompton Gallery will bring together three different international artists Misha Milovanovich, Alexandros Vasmoulakis and Woozy in an exhibition dominated by pink and vibrant happy colours. The exhibition will reflect the three artists’ desire to uplift spirits through their collective freedom of expression.

Misha’s work anticipates dichotomized reactions; the blatant pop-iconography, examines a sphere of objectification, questions the boundaries between the traditional, sentimental, cultural appreciation and the sycophantic, ironic mock-appreciation. The exhibition includes paintings that have a strong visual coherence. In Misha’s ‘Chewing Gum’ acrylic on canvas series, the viewer is invited to identify a classic motif of surrealism re-worked in a cheekily hand-made pop style consisting of a sculptural rendering of neon-hued gum floating above a complementary colour field.

Vasmoulakis’ work also adopts pop elements but with expressionistic hues; ‘The Dancers’, (oil and acrylic on canvas 70 x 90 cm), is a characteristic example of these elements, with its focus remaining distance and detached from priori interpretations, in order to reflect on the nature of the gaze that unfold a continual scenario of intertwined power of relations.

Woozys’ work retains his signature minimal yet colorful forms, interweaving an array of diverse materials, styles and techniques. As seen in his work titled ‘Elizabeth’, transcending the limitations of a specific setting or known face, the characters in his paintings are those that journey through space and time embracing a sense of the universal beauty found in the abstract.

Pink – Me – Ups!’ is inspired by these three artists’ shared love and passion for texture, light and colours, which playfully invite the audience to effortlessly uplift their mood and create a happy long-lasting memory.

The exhibition is curated by Michaela L. Vergottis.
