Filip Zorzor – „Abend ohne Land“ – Painting

Abend ohne Land

It’s Called Perspective in Life; in Painting, Beauty 

The pictures that form the painterly universe of Filip Zorzor (b. Bucharest, 1974; lives and works in Berlin) synthesize his perceptions with the intuitions of his keen senses. They are paintings of human existence, social, political, rich in timbre and sensual. The artist always seeks to capture a visual-emotional whole, aiming for the utmost intensity of experience. His works are not mere depictions; scrutinizing questions immanent to his métier, he achieves a highly individual visual idiom. Superimpositions, transformations, and revisions in the finished pictures bear witness to the creative process. Exuberant grid patterns and vegetative shapes engender a resolutely nonrepresentational and complex space of abstraction. At first glance, the confoundingly soft palette obscures the reflections that gave rise to the artist’s ideas and the resistance they needed to overcome. It is only when the beholder reads the title of a picture or becomes engrossed in a detail that the theoretical space behind the canvas is revealed. 

The opening will coincide with the launch of the eponymously titled oeuvre catalogue „Abend ohne Land“ / „Westward no world“. This is the first comprehensive monograph on Zorzor’s art, with essays written by Florian Illies and Frizzi Krella, published at DISTANZ Verlag, Berlin.
