Landon Metz: Euphoria
6. März – 8. Mai 2021
Geöffnet von 1. März 2021
New York-based artist Landon Metz (b.1985, Phoenix, USA) is known for his subtle, evocative paintings composed of sparse, richly-hued biomorphic shapes on raw canvas. By spreading thin washes of dye on raw canvas, the artist achieves varying degrees of coloristic saturations. EUPHORIA will feature 12 new diptych paintings (40” x 64” each) created over the last year, which will be presented in a continuous line throughout the hall space of the gallery. EUPHORIA will continue Metz’s ongoing investigation into the interrelated nature of our existence via the metaphor of elemental painting. By means of repetition and system, the aesthetic vehicle of these new works, specifically shape and colour, intentionally directs towards the experience itself rather than a singular static object.
Metz’s practice revolves around the activity of painting, yet also incorporates the vocabulary of sculpture, installation as well as performance. In his practice, the artist continually investigates the infinite potential of colour, line and shape. His motifs are organic, softly shaped and constantly curving, giving the impression of dynamic and rhythmic movement.
