Blackout | Jan Maarten Voskuil + Don Voisine | dr. julius | ap | 08.09-15.10.2016

until 15.10. | #0771ARTatBerlin | dr. julius | ap shows currently the exhibition Blackout by the artists Jan Maarten Voskuil and Don Voisine.

The question of whether black is a color does not arise on viewing the works of Don Voisine and Jan Maarten Voskuil: of course, any material that the two painters apply to a surface is color. Even if the media-spectrum extends from classical oil and acrylic-based paint all the way to aerosol automotive paint. A fundamental observation: Black, with all the delicate tonalities, subtle shadings, varied absorptive and reflective possibilities that a multiplicity of pigment types enables, in fact possesses remarkable characteristics and qualities of color. Black has therefore long had an important role in painting, and particularly in non-representational art, with Kasimir Malevich and Ad Reinhardt only two of the most prominent examples. The two painters’ common engagement with black as color — fundamentally as well as in their current and ongoing work — provided the initial impulse for the exhibition BLACKOUT at dr. julius | ap. Beyond this thematic overlap, however, the artists diverge significantly in terms of background and motifs, which lends the combination of their work a specific appeal.

Vernissage: Thursday, 8th September, 07:00 – 09:00 p.m.

Exhibition period: Thursday, 8th September – Saturday, 15th October 2016
