Your Monday Mixx – Enjoy!
A selection of work from Jonathan Levine Gallery’s exhibition “Hybrid Thinking”. Curated by Wooster Collective’s Marc + Sara Schiller, the show show features work by: Dal, from Beijing, China (now based in Cape Town, South Africa); Herakut, a duo based in Frankfurt, Germany; Hyuro, from Buenos Aires, Argentina, currently based in Valencia, Spain; Roa, based in Belgium; Sit, from the Netherlands; and Vinz, born and based in Valencia, Spain.
“With a wide array of discipline, medium, style and cultural influence, work by the six artists in this exhibition is thematically cohesive in its related subject matter—through figurative pairings of human and animal elements, the artists explore concepts of instinct, identity and metamorphoses. In the curators’ words: “Hybrid Thinking refers to the current zeitgeist of our time: disparate cultures coming together to create something completely new. Though from distinctly different cultural backgrounds, these artists share an understanding of our cities, of the human condition and our complex relationship with nature.”
“Hybrid Thinking” runs through February 11, 2012. To see more, visit JonathanLevineGallery.com.
The “academic sculptor” DAL has been dedicated to Urban Art since 2004. He is inspired by the way the material world revolves, how the spiritual world unfolds, life’s emotions and the infinite space around us. He uses a variety of mediums, methods, disciplines and spaces to create his works.
At a first glance, some of his work on walls appear to be painted: giant creatures and parasites in a wire garment jump out of the wall. Only after a second look does one see the entwined sculpture.
