IOMO Gallery is pleased to present “Travel Guide”, a group exhibition that brings together new works from 19 European painters from 4 different countries, whose practices span from emerging to established.
“Travel Guide” opens a dialogue on the practice of painting, between artists of different backgrounds and generational affiliations, and invites the viewer to reflect on the collective mind-flow of our times, in this ongoing period of uncertainty and significant change. The exhibition’s title is a straightforward proposition towards exploration, through figurative iterations, of the organic effects of our experience with the mundane: whether it’s the representational depiction of the physical space or just fragmentary analysis on thoughts, sensations, emotions or expressions. For some of the artists in this exhibition, the act of prolonged immersion in their familiar surroundings and the camaraderies formed with the people in their nearest environment become the focus of their practice. For other artists the natural and urban worlds are replaced by excursions into parallel universes with eerie creatures governed by allegorical rituals.
