SCOPE Basel 2018

Arte Ponte shall be exhibiting at this year’s edition of SCOPE Basel at booth A69 and featuring nine emerging, contemporary artists who demonstrate different trends who explore various mediums in contemporary art.

Artists include Julia Dubovyk (USA), Christopher Parrot (USA), Maria Aparici (Spain), Guang Zhu (USA), Jon Rollins(USA), Lori Schouela (USA), Wayne Reynolds (USA), Mihail Tomescu(USA) and Loló Rodriguez (Chile).

Non-representational work artists Jon Rollins and Lori Schouela explore media experimentation. Rollins´ work evolve through oscillations of spontaneous, intuitive movements and methodical structuring, ranging from chance marks to grid layouts. Schouela paintings use playful and sensuous materials such as rose petals to explore and recreate the intangible energies of consciousness.

In contrast, Christopher Parrott, Julia Dubovyk and Mihail Tomescu approach methods of figurative painting. Contemporary internet-driven culture, exhibitionism and voyeurism are significant themes in Parrott´s work while Dubovyk captures the unexpected through rich, deep colors within simple compositions. Tomescu paintings move between image and the objective quality of the surface, using antithetical transitive gestures that attempt to establish a tension between their representational functions and their immanent richness as material with its chromatic and tactile charge.

Artist Guang Zhu studies mathematical formulas and write computer code to express parametric equations. This hybrid experiences built by the preciseness of computing mathematical operations somehow invokes a sense of alienated wonder.

Maria Aparici and Loló Rodriguez project their lives on a white canvas. Aparici creates images that convinces, overwhelms and bewilders with elegance without violence, aggression, without stridencies, that could be contemplated with certain stupor, respect and jealousy. Pop culture, grunge music, hip-hop and street art are the influences of Rodriguez’s work. Rodriguez uses various media to make irony about the conservative and oppressive society in which she grew up in.

Painter Wayne Reynolds works go into deep Space using implied texture supported by complex patterns, color and movement. They represent the energy in the universe with countless particles simultaneously spinning, attracting, and repelling.
