Exhibition Opening: Erik Sille - The adventures of Junshi and Stillborn II

Since his early work, the visual fascination of Erik Sille draws energy from sources, which are not quite usual for the medium of painting, but thanks to his artistic activities, they settled in contemporary Slovak paining quite well. The fact that Erik Sille cunningly appropriates means of expression, objects, methods, and themes of the so-called consumerist culture, pop-culture or visuality of the electronic media is a clearly identified attribute of his individual visual language. Without any problems we recognize elements known from the wild and mad visuality of the present times: comic book, animated cinema, internet, computer games, street art, graffiti, tattoo, package design, iconography of advertising and entertainment business, political propaganda all the way to the design of serially produced plastic objects including toys.
Storytelling through a picture belongs to the inherent and characteristic attributes of Sille's work. Various animal or comic book characters are usually the carriers and agents of stories. Characters in Sille's paintings find themselves in situations which are almost contrary to the clear and ideal world in which they are placed, or – if these are citations or found objects – to the world from which they come from. These situations are at least wrong if not pathological. The canvases emanate sticky sweetness of infantile naivety, childish pseudo-purity and hyped-up harmony of well-made up world, with its brightness shadowing the cruelty, rawness, brutality and perversion of the pictured situations or narrated stories. - Noro Lacko

About the artist:
Patrick Bremer (1982, Brighton/UK) explores the boundaries of collage using old magazines and books from thrift stores and car boot sales, producing portraits of the people around him. The medium allows for quick breaks between figurative and abstract elements, adding a fluidity and dynamism to what is essentially a traditional portrait. The piece begins with a rough plan, and then takes on its own direction, pushed by the shapes, colours and lines that come up in the paper to hand. Collage encourages this playful use of chance elements, sucking in text, stories and imagery from an array of different sources to create their own narrative on the canvas.
Patrick Bremer received his BFA from Wimbledon School of Art in London and has won The DeLazlo Foundation Award from The Royal Society of Portrait Painters for his figurative work. He currently lives and works in Berlin.
