until 24.06. | #1319ARTatBerlin | Galerie Weiss Berlin presents from 27th April 2017 the exhibition by the artist Ali Altin.
“Ali Altin’s world of figures emerges from the undergrowth of images and times, familiarly near and infinitely distant – at times akin to comic-like sketches, then again as is transferred from a Pompeian villa. One believes to have encountered all these faces, grimaces, and goblins before: in the media or in a dream. Arising from a network of collective intelligence, like that of our bacterial cultures, in paintings, Ali Altin is the medium for this multifarious tangle of mnemosyne (Aby Warburg). Not to form new scenarios, but to create pictures.” (Veit Loers)
The grotesque and the beautiful spring from the formal possibilities of painting by Ali Altin’s careful use of various graphic and painterly techniques. His figurative paintings evoke narrative content in mystic figures, objects, and spaces.
Ali Altin (* 1976 in Goch, Germany) lives and works in Düsseldorf. He studied at Arnhem EZ and the Kunstakademie Duesseldorf (class Tal R). His work was exhibited at the Kunsthaus Innsbruck, at Parkhaus Malkasten Düsseldorf, and at Haus Mödrath.
