until 14.10. | #1485ARTatBerlin | Galerie Pugliese Levi shows from 8th September 2017 the exhibition “Cosmic Playground” with works by the artist Marc Lambrechts.

Galerie Pugliese Levi shows the paintings of New York based artist Marc Lambrechts for the first time in Berlin. With basal patterns, materials, and techniques, executed mostly on wood, plaster, and paper, his works open views into hidden worlds. The macrocosms of nature, life, and universal space appear in microcosmic correspondences on the manifold surfaces of the paintings. Lambrechts captures the metaphysics of our world with lighthanded charm.

The artists summons cosmic visions with the humblest matter: corn husks and banana leaves, bamboo and cement, latex and leather. Surfaces emerge that are never flat; captured energies reverberate in their depths and elevations. Opened up by carefully and precisely implemented scratchings, other surfaces beneath emerge, in a playful tension of the pierced realities of the universe. In the works on paper the fragile, thinned out surface turns into a fluttering veil.

The image is never just an image. For the artist renders the fabric of the universe with supple lines of a shimmering grid – a cheese cloth imprinted on leather – upon which space flowers grow (Space Flowers). And the universe is never just a universe; sometimes it resembles incandescent cities (City of Light).
