Hales Gallery is happy to announce Spilaio, its fourth solo exhibition with Dutch-born, New York based artist Sebastiaan Bremer. The exhibition, taking its title from the Greek word which means cave, has come to life through an amalgamation of various elements, objects and media combined to create a single large-scale instillation occupying the entire space of the gallery. The exhibition will further explore the ideas from Bremebers recent exhibition at MOCA Tucson in Tucson, Arizona.
Using the Greek word for ‘cave’ for the little of the show. Bremer hints at the mythical and almost sacred side of art-making – the final outcome upon the piece’s completion, the other side.
For his 2-dimensional works, Bremeber employs various techniques to distort and change the image and the surface of the photograph: cutting and carving around sections of emulsion, which are then backfilled with paint. or using ink and photographic dyes to produce fine patterns of lines reminiscent of cobwebs or readings from seismographs.
We spoke to Sebastiaan about his inspiration behind and art and his feelings towards the final outcome.
