"Holy Destruction"

From 28 August to 31 October 2009

Holy Destruction, is the very explicit title of the intentions of these artists who use painting as both a means and an end, with intensity and aggressiveness.  They joyously destroy the lexicon of the image so that it resurges, direct and powerful.  Liberty of touch, enhancement of the pictorial matter in order to lend the motif density and intensity, chromatic disharmony, electrifying composition—all of these techniques rough up the representation as a means of revealing the sense and the nature of the painting. All of these works are marked by dynamism, élan, and energy.
Holy Destruction  will bring this new pictorial field to the fore.
