IRENE SÁNCHEZ MORENO ”SUM(M)IT”

Wadström Tönnheim Gallery, Marbella

1th of October –  6th of November, 2022

Wadström Tönnheim Gallery Marbella presents the exhibition “SUM(M)IT” with the acclaimed and acknowledged Spanish and Granada based artist Irene Sánchez Moreno. It’s her first exhibition with the gallery and it is curated by Elena Caranca. Vernissage is open for all and everyone on Saturday the 1th of October between 19.00-21.30h.

John Berger, acclaimed art critic and writer, affirms that the human being is aware of the social environment before being aware of the natural environment, however we know that the latter develops at an early age and, as in the case of Sanchez Moreno, can prevail over time. The Sierra of Granada, the land, is the most recurrent motif in the work of this artist, its representation is so powerful that it becomes an icon, the totem of her painting.

The sublime character of the landscape has been, in the History of Art, the object of study and analysis for many decades, and the revision in terms of content and form is precisely what the exhibition is about.

The four larger paintings respond to previous works, created between 2015 and 2019, and on which Irene has reexamined the key elements from the smaller format pieces. We have to immerse ourselves in the observation of all the works as an experimental and global set, where the timeline has been opened in favor of the details, emphasizing even more, if possible, the relationship between human and nature. This connection is detailed under the gaze of the artist, intending that the vestiges question the viewer, ratifying the deterioration caused by the passage of time and the color palette confers a strong uniformity with the aim of sensitizing us to loneliness, cold and silence.

Berger’s texts also praise the forest paths and the cabin retreat as a way of thinking resulting, in my opinion, a fundamental link in these canvases. Let us pay attention to his words because as he accurately expresses it, looking is a conscious act, a political act, which requires a slow pace and that that gaze is altered by the direct experience of the public and, without a doubt, by the social context in which image is being perceived.

FAUSTO AMUNDARAIN ”ROARING DAYS”

Wadström Tönnheim Gallery, Marbella

9th of September –  30th of October, 2022

 

Wadström Tönnheim Gallery kicks of the autumn program with a most fascinating and joyful exhibition by the young emerging artist Fausto Amundarain. This is the artist first exhibition in Marbella and with the gallery. Fausto Amundarain is from Venezuela but based in Madrid since 2019 and represented by the Caracas and Madrid located gallery Cerquone. Vernissage is open for all and everyone on Friday the 9th of September between 19.00-21.30h.

 

“I use segments of comics and caricatures (among other stuff) as a visual language, elements that are already nostalgic by nature and present in the collective memory, almost rethinking their past and the moment in which these images were developed. The work becomes the passage from one point to another, the study and conversion of the original image into another. Dissecting the basic composition, adding and removing elements, re-developing the lines that make up its totality and taking it to a scale where the original meaning changes completely, taking it out of context and turning it into something seemingly unattainable”.                                                                                                                                                                                                Fausto Amundarain

THE CONQUEST OFF SPACE

Born in July, Fausto Amundarain (Caracas, 1992) knows that every experience lived in person involves marking territory at a hectic pace that requires depth and needs pauses. In that sense, creative processes lead to places that, in some way, one has foreseen. Round trip paths in which you have to be attentive and know how to accompany each other so that many of the things that one is aligned. Build scenarios for things to happen, strengthening the language itself and without stopping exploring the possibilities that the tools themselves allow.

Undoubtedly, Roaring Days comes at an ideal time for all of this. Days in which Fausto Amundarain allows himself to put together a concise and resounding exhibition of what he has been accumulating in recent years in cities like Caracas, Madrid, Palma and Miami. It is no longer just a work that expands and flirts with other mediums, but devices that are likely to generate conflicts wherever they are located, housing personal experiences and referential information that is more refined than ever. Why do we take the conquered common territory for granted? These and other issues run parallel to a necessary conciliation of the artist with himself regarding certain internal and external demands. Cuts and scrapes. Living processes that are translated behind windows in which miniatures that pointed out ways have grown and liberated, co-starring in the space alongside newly discovered backgrounds. Fragments that are emancipated, redrawing themselves under other aspects. Silhouettes and spots that play to be recognized. Vectoral organization.

All this from these four walls. Then there is the floor, that other place on which an uncertain and mobile wooden structure rests, and where other remnants are rearranged around it. An artefact designed and built by the artist himself in which container and content interpellate harmoniously. A device to discover other ways of exhibiting and approaching. A surface that entails a double movement: its own when touched and/or pushed, and that of the spectator when moving around it. And that double action turns Wadström Tönnheim’s space into a surrounding setting and into a space that also deserves to be imagined from above. A lively and disconcerting exhibitor that wants to be activated. Probably, the territory that most represents Fausto Amundarain.

So, the lion keeps on roaring tonight (Wimoweh)!

Fausto Amundarain (Caracas, 1992) artist whose research is based on different references. Initially an identity reflected in children’s icons, such as comics, press photographs and other images of the collective imagination and its use of interpretation as a kind of reflective process where an obsession is noticed that translates into the meticulous care of each record, image, item or finding. His artistic production has focused on generating strong performance stimuli with high technical elaboration, giving great importance to the meticulous construction of his projects. He studied Art and Design in the city of Caracas in 2010 and later studied screen printing, drawing
and painting in the city of New York in 2014. Among his most recent projects are a solo exhibition at the Cerquone gallery in Madrid in 2020 and later an installation project at TACA in Palma de Mallorca in Oct 2021.

ART FOR FREEDOM – CHARITY EVENT FOR UKRAINE

CHARITY EXHIBITION OF CONTEMPORARY UKRANIAN ART

An exhibition of contemporary Ukrainian art and sale of works will take place from July 8 to 10 at Wadström Tönnheim Gallery in Marbella, Spain. The exhibition aims to support Ukrainian artists during the war, present contemporary Ukrainian culture abroad and to make cultural and professional connections between Spanish collectors and contemporary Ukrainian art. The project will present 26 works by 15 Ukrainian artists. We invite you to join us on the 9th of July 18.30-21.30 for mingle and tapas in order to raise money for the victims of the war. Please see more information on our Instagram @wadstromtonnheimgallery.

The most prominent Ukrainian artists and sculptors will take part in the exhibitions: Daria Alyoshkina, Nazar Bilyk, Artem Volokitin, Petro Gronsky, Vasiliy Grublyak, Oleksii Zolotariov, Daryna Mykytyuk, Nina Murashkina, Yuriy Koval, Tetyana Malynovska, Vitaliy Kravets, Liliya Studnytska, Valeria Troubina, Ivan Tsyupka, INS (Eugene Gladenko). The exhibition includes painting, graphic, photography and sculpture.

Curator Svitlana Starostenko talks about the importance of the exhibition.

”There are many talented artists in Ukraine – promising and already well-known. In recent years many galleries have opened in our country, it’s been large exhibition projects, and new patrons of modern art have appeared on the art market. But due to the war, the possibility of developing this area was postponed indefinitely. Now it is important to look for new ways and opportunities so that the artists can continue to work.

It is quite natural that today’s works of our authors are a reflection of horrible, tragic events that should not have happened in the civilized world. But during the presentation of our art abroad, entering a new professional territory, it’s important for us first of all to show the usual artistic practice in which Ukrainian artists work. Then, the impression of the art of our country will be objective.

Our cooperation with the Spanish Swedish gallery  – Wadström Tönnheim Gallery – is based on the support and promotion of Ukrainian art in Europe. We have the opportunity to find a new audience. Such an opportunity would be considered valuable in the past, pre-war times, but today it is a real necessity. We are glad to have the opportunity to cooperate with Spain, the homeland of incredible artists. ”

Today, the artists participating in the exhibition are scattered all over Ukraine and the world:  Valeria Troubina, although living in the United States, is now in the temporarily occupied territory of Luhansk, where she arrived last year due to personal circumstances; Lviv artist Daria Alyoshkina is temporarily in Krakow, and artist Lilia Studnytska is in her native Lviv. But wherever Ukrainian artists are, none of them stop creating. The Art for Freedom exhibition will present recent works by artists over the past few years, some of which – such as Vitaliy Kravets’ graphic series made over the past three months – will be shown to the public for the first time.

The funds raised will go to the authors of the exhibited works and Future for Ukraine international charitable foundation.

One of the missions of our project is charity. The war has forced millions of Ukrainians to suffer. Many Ukrainian people – among them civilians and children – are wounded en masse. They have suffered from artillery shelling, or were trapped under the rubble of shelled buildings and need the help. Such patients are admitted to hospitals with multiple bone fractures and require immediate surgery.

An effective treatment method for them is metal osteosynthesis — the connection of bone fragments with titanium plates. Here are a lot of Ukrainians who need osteofixation systems. Each victim has its own unique story and its own struggle for life. That is why the part of funds raised will go on osteofixation systems for victims with bone fractures. We cannot heal broken destinies. But we can help doctors who save people every day and give them a chance to live to the fullest.

 

The exhibition and sale will take place from 8 to 10 July at the Wadström Tönnheim Gallery, Marbella, Spain

The initiator of the project is Oleksandra Markova, a philanthropist and collector.

Exhibition curator – Svetlana Starostenko, independent curator, art dealer, art critic.

The project is supported by Mattias Tönnheim – founder and director of Wadström Tönnheim Gallery, located in Marbella (Spain) and Malmo (Sweden)

 

About Future for Ukraine

Future for Ukraine is an international charitable foundation created by ten Ukrainian women from various professional fields who cannot stand aside from the war in Ukraine. The foundation brings together volunteers, NGOs and businesses worldwide to support war victims. FFU provides humanitarian aid and medical care to those who need it most — children, medical institutions and Ukrainians in need of treatment in Ukraine and abroad. ffu.foundation

 

 

ANDERS KAPPEL ”A FEW DAYS”

ANDERS KAPPEL ”A FEW DAYS”

Wadström Tönnheim Gallery, Marbella
28 of May –  25 of September, 2022

Wadström Tönnheim Gallery proudly presents its second solo exhibition with the established and prominent Swedish artist Anders Kappel. This is Mr. Kappels first exhibition in Spain since he was exhibited at ARCO in the late eighties, and Anders long and impressive CV speaks for itself. Vernissage is open for all and everyone on Saturday the 28th of May between 18.30-21.30h.

The mission Anders Kappel assigned himself was to paint 100 signs in 100 days. In most cases, the motif consists of a name or a word with a light background. Others include abstract forms, color fields, or lines. When we meet at the old farmhouse in Skräddaröd, an isolated corner of Österlen among horse paddocks, apple groves and rolling fields, signs fill the studio. All of them are painted on two-centimeter-thick, birch or pine plywood, cut into rectangles slightly smaller than an A4 sheet of paper — a practical and reader-friendly format. But the project is not as easy to grasp as one might at first think. At close range, the paintings appear worn and tattered, as though having been used over a longer period of time. The surface, that appears white from a distance, is streaked with the grain of the wood underneath, yellowed or marked in places with darker or more brightly colored pigments. Traces and shadows of underlying layers of paint, places or experiences penetrate forth. Fragments of that which has been forgotten, hidden or suppressed over the years. Piled on top of each other, the signs are reminiscent of books, as though the painting itself was just the outer skin of that which lies within. Seen as a whole, they coalesce into a White Book of sorts over the past and present.

”It’s all about wrapping things up and looking back. Of including both the good and bad experiences”, says Anders Kappel. It is tempting to read these paintings as a map, a journal or autobiography. Despite their down-to-earth appearance, these are possibly among Kappel’s most personal works. With his brush, he draws the contours of trademarks, administrative authorities and public transport companies, the logos of which are rendered in minute detail. They indicate locations, occasions, encounters and needs. Moments of failure and success, bureaucracy and travel, happiness and pain. Here we have Aspirin, public employment services, the bailiff, etc. But also German airports and beer brands, Russian airlines and American art magazines. Boulevard Raspail is painted with the characteristic font of the Parisian street network, and bears hints of visits to the museums of the metropolis back in his school years. At the same time, he inserts traces of artists that have been important to him, among others, the Russian constructivist El Lissitzky. Rectangles and diagonals, silhouettes of masts and lookout towers — everything becomes a part of Kappel’s own pictorial idiom. It is clear, however, that these signs are not only connected to the artist’s personal life. Do not be fooled by their seemingly neutral appearance. Despite, or perhaps thanks to, the fact that they make use of the established symbols and imagery of the public space and financial markets, they strike different chords and give rise to different associations in every individual viewer. The fact that the logos are hand painted might perhaps dampen their official appearance, but in no way lessens the effect. There is, on the contrary, something disarming to the uneven edges and traces of brushstrokes that causes one to lower one’s guard.

One can easily view these signs in relation to an art historical tradition. During the 1960s, American pop artists such as Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein and James Rosenquist incorporated advertising and popular culture into their paintings, silk-screens, collages and assemblages when commenting on the growing consumer society of the post-war era. Several of them had a background in fields of graphic design and marketing, the ideology and aesthetics of which they related to with a combination of admiration and critique. Even a Swedish pop artist such as Öyvind Fahlström experimented with well-known brand names, logotypes, and both current and historical courses of events in his works. With his signs, board games, and paintings, he playfully and subversively suggests various strategies to destabilize the established order of things.

Anders Kappel meticulously examines ideas and words, even when he speaks. Here, the idea of the artist as an analyst of the demands that life places upon us comes into play. It is all about formulating the essence, of boiling it down to one word, one surface, that, in itself, accommodates all other words and surfaces. Hanging on a wall in his studio is a row of rulers, tools and one final sign. A familiar vignette, known from countless cinema salons emerges against its matt, shimmering copper surface.

But once again, our expectations are upended. The surface upon which the vignette is painted bears the shape of a torn off film strip that continues even after the final word marks its end. Kappel’s urge to create signs will surely not end here. To be continued…

This is an extract from the essay “Anders Kappel and the Art of Creating Meaning From Ambiguity” about Kappels work written by the Swedish critic and art historian Caroline Söderholm.

 

Anders Kappel, born 1956 in Hasslö/Karlskrona (south of Sweden). He now lives and work in the village Skräddaröd outside of Simrishamn in Österlen Sweden. Educated at Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Stockholm 1982-87 and at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin 1988-89. See full CV below.
