until 05.05. | #1956ARTatBerlin | Gallery Michael Reid currently shows the exhibition Second Skin  by the artist David Ralph.

David Ralph reflects on how built environments, cities and dwellings shape human experiences and forge identities. His paintings address the psychology of architectural spaces and what they say about the people who inhabit them. Recent work has looked at the places that artists and musicians colonise and transform. After moving to Leipzig in 2014, Ralph became interested in the derelict buildings that artists choose to reoccupy, as property elsewhere in the western world becomes unaffordable. Ralph finds the ‘theatre of life’ inscribed within the walls of these spaces, and describes his atmospheric, jewel-like paintings as collective portraits of the people who have occupied them over time. This interest has expanded into an examination of historically significant spaces of former creative ferment. Sites such as the CBGB’s club in New York and the Bimbo Bar and Spinnerei complex in Leipzig have been the subjects of recent works.

Vernissage: Friday, 23rd March 2018, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
