until 18.06. | #3476ARTatBerlin | HazeGallery presents from 2. June 2022 the exhibition «Transformation» by the artist Lasha Tchrelashvili, curated by Irina Rusinovich.
Pictorial traditions in art have a very deep and long history. Since the Middle Ages and Renaissance artists have been trying to find their unique and individual way, a form of utterance. Painters used color as a medium and expression method, escaping more and more new facets of interpretations. In the Symbolism tradition, artists used color as a code, where each color had its meaning. And today many painters are working with color very carefully and attentively, using colors as sights and some sort of visual message.
In the TRANSFORMATION project, Lasha Tchrelashvili is reflecting on the inner force that all of us have inside. Today, when the whole world is in a permanent crisis, we have many problems: social, political, and ecological. Every day we have to fight with circumstances and with ourselves and make moral choices day by day. We should be strong to stay human, to not go insane.
Artist uses color as an image language, telling viewers the story of his life through sharp abstract images. His artworks are abstract and very expressive. When we look closely, we see that all forms on canvas look like they are in movement, like in a second, they will be in another place, in another world.
Visitors of the exhibition with author go on a journey through the years, through the important events of the artist’s life. From canvas to canvas we see the history of Lasha’s maturity and the process of tempering his character.
Lasha Tchrelashvili: The painting process is a kind of a thinking process for me. Sometimes you get distracted, other times you’re fully invested. It’s a dynamic process both emotionally and conceptually. My paintings are products of this thinking process which I then observe. Through these observations, I analyze my internal, and spiritual state and my position in relation to the universe. My intention is not to contain the dialogue within my world; therefore I open up the conversation with a question. I title my paintings as a question to spark the desire for exploration within the viewers themselves.
Exhibition dates: Thursday, 2. June to Saturday, 18. June 2022To the Gallery
