until 02.03. | #2332ARTatBerlin | Galerie Born Berlin presents from 18th January 2019 the exhibition “Ogham” by the artist John Noel Smith.
The paintings deal with paint and pattern, but they are also deeply nourished by the world itself, by shapes in nature, by knots, by the shapes that appear when the structure of the world is closely, or microscopically, examined, by waves and particles. But the canvases are also nourished by the idea of connection and disruption, by the clash or the intersection between the straight line and the line that curls, by colour that is easily named and shades within shades that are much harder to be sure about, that hit the nervous system uneasily.
Some of the marks also suggest human marks, such as the swirls and elaborate designs in early Irish illuminated manuscripts, such as early writing, such as patterns in stonework, such as signs that have been left in the landscape by culture as much as by nature. They also embody or dramatize human struggles or the conflict between tension and ease, between what is coiled and highly charged and what has been assented to.
