About the paintings by Konstantino Dregos – Capto Vacui (grabbing into the empty)
Dregos work shows the unending adventures of the idea from the moment its procreation into the state of its implementation and fate on its way to the human perception. This path might be filled with contradictions, logical gaps, errors, reversals, abolitions and simultaneously the blank carrier of the aimed metamorphosis, but never the less offers a resilient insight on the human condition.
The platonic glance on the world and the vibrating space between Science and Myth constitutes the theoretical and practical framework of this epic attempt.
– For me as a gallerist it’s a pure joy and an adventure to see these amazing artists, that I introduced to each other a couple of years ago, collaborate and develop this intriguing visual language. The fact that they also have become close friends during this time is a true bonus and a sign of their transcendent connection, says Mattias Tönnheim director of Wadström Tönnheim Gallery.
About the works by Matias Di Carlo from the Folds Series and Symmetry Ploy series..
Through his artwork Di Carlo experiments the fold as the strength that shapes matter to infinity. Experiencing metamorphosis through the fold that uses energy pulses as the cause itself. The dynamics within, to change the nature of matter. Matter evolved into contention of the void.
In the Symmetry Ploy series the artist fragments to comprehend, turning symmetry into jumble, still seeking refuge and alignment. Melting structures conceived to be perpetual, to free themselves…
Insurrection of established forms. Emerging of what’s still to be named.
