Ivan Plusch

From 02/09/2012 To 03/06/2012

Exhibition "Ivan Plusch: Suite of 6" presents the artist Ivan Plusch (1981, St-Petersburg), considered to be "one of the young stars of Saint-Petersburg art". "His canvases exploit "peinture coulee", with Plusch turning profile portraits, thickly painted and still wet, on to their sides and allowing the image to deform by the pull of gravity on the paint. The effect is of a face whose features are blasted by an unknown force, against a background signalling some public context - in one case an artship, in another a television headquarters" - Financial Times
