PINK PUNK MOOD
Caelis Galeria is pleased to present Argentine contemporary surrealist artist Arol (B.1974)'s latest solo exhibition "PINK PUNK MOOD" . This solo exhibition will present nine of Arol's latest artworks, which continue his unique visual language of painting, and you may be able to capture the visual pleasure of the multi-layered images in the warm colors. Each work is infused with the artist's perception of life, and when sweetness and bitterness meet, you may feel the taste of life itself in the artworks. Pink, the main theme of this exhibition, is a realistic representation of Arol's artistic dream, symbolizing a new beginning and a metamorphosis that you will experience more details at the exhibition.
The background of the exhibition is set at dawn, and each work tells its own story, which means the characters in the paintings are experiencing an episode that cannot be replicated in different situations. Under the language of surrealism, the artist incorporates life symbols with symbolic meaning into the paintings, hoping that viewers will find these "hidden clues" at the exhibition.
Delicate brushstrokes, mild colors and dull tones constitute the artist's visual language, which is interpreted as a small theater in the frame with different scene settings. When we focused on the artworks, we could see the characters to stay alone on the stage he created in the silent and restless tone. Arol uses the texture of oil painting to subtly integrate the experience of computer graphics from earlier years into his current creations, allowing overlay of layers, which formes a unique space in the artwork. The visual clues of sharpness and roundness also run through artist’s major practice in various periods. However, along with the artist’s shift to the integrated use of landscape, human and objects, the mood of his works has also moved away from the subtle expressions implied by the individual, turning to intensify the dual stage of sweetness and destruction constituted by the gravitational force of multiple elements.
