Down For You” is a new body of work from Victor Reyes

Victor Reyes has dedicated more than half of his life to painting. Commitment is evident in his work and is a constant theme in the tradition of the graffiti movement. Dedications are hallmarks, written in tribute for the memory of those who came before us and for those who have departed. “Down for you” is a collection of paintings in oil and spray paint that conjure up an imaginary world of pigments and memories.

These pictures are the building blocks of a new painting language for Victor Reyes. Classical references are deconstructed in primitive strokes to complete these anti-portraits and landscapes. The meanings derived from these pieces are multifaceted. Plain objects, stretched across color fields that combat the frame work to which they are bound and tethered, reveal the excitement of destruction. The momentum and rhythm of these movements obscure earlier marks of beauty and begin to decompose the subject into forms less recognizable.

Know Hope solo exhibition at Gordon Gallery in Tel Aviv, Israel

February 21 2013 . 10:25pm

e-flyer

In his upcoming two part solo exhibition, “Things That Stand Between / Things Left Standing Behind”, Know Hope continues his observation on the various forms of intermediate states, while focusing on ‘things that stand between’- borders, fences, flags and walls.

In the exhibitions, Know Hope attempts to portray these images while perceiving them as an emotional mechanism.

The artist does so by personifying these symbols and creating parallels between their functions and minor human conditions that compose the layered everyday reality.

This is an exhibition that takes place in two parts-

The first opening on February 28th (closing 18/3), and the second on March 21st (closing 6/4) , as a continuation and conclusion of the first.

This is Know Hope’s first solo exhibition in a gallery in Israel.
