until 02.07. | #3449ARTatBerlin | RASCHE RIPKEN shows from 29. April 2022 the exhibition „Silent City“ by the Dutch artist Jan Ros.
City, architecture, mobility – these are themes Jan Ros has explored for a long time. Using photographs as source material, he transforms them into multifarious paintings mainly oriented toward space and object, but which also engender abstract passages defined entirely by color. He switches the degree of acuity and path of movement depending on the subject, modeling sculptural volumes out of broad brushstrokes, and working with stencil-like inserts and sharp contours that stand out from their painted surroundings like cut-outs.
Ros’s repertoire includes urban landscapes and famous modernist, International-style buildings, as well as images of cars and airplanes, or of transitory sites like gas stations and transit terminals, which often recollect filmed images, like scenes from a road movie.
Furthermore, his paintings of empty interiors – which feature views of urban panoramas through a window – also demonstrate that the interaction of inside and outside, light and shade, plays an important role in his pictorial compositions.
Opening: Friday, 29. April 2022, 6:00 – 9:00 pm
