Strauss Bourque-LaFrance

“It’s difficult to be sure where a work by artist Strauss Bourque-LaFrance begins and ends. Installations expand and contract, pausing to add an ornament here or there. Materials and references narrowly miss each other or hide behind one another, reaching out over wall-to-wall white carpeting.” - Jennifer Piejko for V Magazine

Gabriele De Santis

gds

Gabriele De Santis is a conceptual artist and painter. He considers ways in which objects can be liberated from their states and extrapolated into the realm of fine art and the residuals that come along with this (dis)placement.

De Santis has been praised for his ability to balance texture, shape and monochrome with his recent series of painted-over slabs of marble. In these compositions the rippled becomes an integrated and integral material whose surface consistency is emphasised through the vivid colours that surround it. These works are oftentimes displayed as diptychs with parenthetical brackets that are evocative of openness and closure. Negative and positive space become indistinguishable.

As De Santis describes, “Using the background texture, premade by nature, and imposing areas of monochrome on top, I am playing with the hierarchy of background and foreground within painting.” Simultaneously, the artist’s painting deals with natural change as the metamorphic rock’s appearance has altered over time.

The counterpart to this series is a suite of “skate canvas works”: monochromatic surfaces emblazoned with grip tape and supported by skateboard wheels. In many cases these works are patterned with hashtags; emblematic of the instantaneity of today’s visual culture and in the polar opposite to the slow formation of marble. Concept based typeface formants give both sets of paintings new significance beyond the realm of abstraction.

Gabriele De Santis (b.1983) completed his MA in Visual Arts at Camberwell College of Arts (University of the Arts London). He lives and works in Rome. -ARTUNER
