until 14.05. | #0478ARTatBerlin | Berlinartprojects presents from the 9th April 2016 the exhibition “Zeroville” by the artist Peter Ruehle.
BERLINARTPROJECTS is proud to present a striking series of cityscapes by Peter Ruehle alongside his large-scale work Milky Way (2012-2014). From far away the nocturnal views resemble the line of a heart rate monitor, the spikes of the towers of the metropolis simulate the throb of city life in architectural form whilst by day they recall a trail of ants, bringing to mind the bustling activity associated with urban existence. Playing with the horizontals of classical landscape painting, Ruehle’s meticulous portrayals of entire cities in miniature form along a single line can never by fully grasped – from a distance the buildings and bridges blend into a level horizontal line engulfed by sky above and water below, yet up close one can merely see the details of one section of a very large canvas. Abstract at a distance yet hyperreal in close proximity, these elusive works seem to shift in and out of focus, pulsating with a life of their own.
Vernissage: Friday, 08th April 2016, from 06:00 p.m.
