November 10 – December 22, 2017
Vernissage: November 10, 6 P.M.
Magic Beans Gallery is pleased to present Konstantin Déry´s solo exhibition “Burn, Still”. A slow work process leads to Konstantin Déry´s paintings, and with their intricate motifs taken from nature, the viewer is invited to take them in slowly. By applying the paint with palette knives and small wooden picks, he creates rough surfaces that further increase the intensity evoked by the strong colour harmonies and structural diversity of texture that characterize his paintings. An idiosyncratic liveliness, which also inhabits the uncontrolled flora and the formations of decay, meets the viewer´s eye. It inspires a sensation in the joy of seeing, of visually experiencing, as a symbol of being alive. Viewed up close, the images in Déry´s paintings can dissolve into dynamic abstract structures, only to become all the more sensual, charged with a very inner dynamic, when seen from a certain distance.
