RECOVERY | Christian August

In the solo show RECOVERY at SMAC Christian August showed 9 new canvases, which found their inspiration in the rough, sprayed walls of the city.
It is a poetic translation of found everyday situations and observations in urban space on the canvas. A mechanical treatment of the surface and the spontaneous ductus dominate the work. Along with it August consciously sets abstract surfaces, in a radiant blue that stands in contrast to the sensually experimental language of the works. The style, which is reminiscent of graffiti and wall structures, is thus related to the level of architecture, urban space and construction of surface.

  1. Fabulous strong body of work, inspirational. Feel they may perhaps work best as a whole, and would love to see them in the flesh.
