Red Tape, a new exhibition opens in London this week featuring new works by New York based artist Stanley Casselman and London based artist Hyo Myoung Kim, for which Metro is thrilled to have produced aluminium lightboxes
and reverse Perspex mounted prints
The works in the exhibition feature Casselman’s complex paintings created by applying multiple layers of acrylic paint to a wet canvas using a flexible squeegee. Inspired by a tongue-in-cheek comment by American art critic Jerry Saltz of New York Magazine, Casselman’s new body of work, Inhaling Richter, is a collection of original works that contain a strong visual concept prominent in the works of German artist Gerhard Richter but simultaneously retain his own artistic perspective. thus highlights the influence of the late 20th century avant-gardist artists.
In contrast, Hyo Myoung Kim digitises images to create complex visual developments of the actual and existing data he collates. Rather than dissociating his colour blocks from any traditional or symbolic meaning, he alludes to the visual language of Modern Art.
The works draw on the cyclical nature of creative input and output and by referencing the predecessors and question how far contemporary techniques can overtake and outweigh that which was created and explored in the past.
