Also for the Museum of New Art, the bank hall located in the former building of SEB Bank is a new temporary space. However, the “temporary surface” is also a well-observed phenomenon in the creation of every painting, both from a buccalistic and semiotic point of view. Impressions and moods extracted from the surrounding reality and the psychic sphere (or inner space) are translated into two-dimensional surfaces and color impressions in painting, in order to revive a new, so-called real life for viewers in the reception process.
In a broader sense, painting is classified as a field of activity that is sensitive to changes in the spiritual atmosphere. The exhibition can also be viewed in a social context as a self-help program for artists – to continue with the so-called traditions established in the new normality, with the most fibers. The spring of 2021 is the year of the pandemic – one can only assume whether and how the majority of painters, whose instrument is a hand holding a brush, can keep their creative form?
Due to the specifics of the room and partitions, the exhibition has a format restriction – the horizontal maximum size of the exhibited works is 110-130 cm.
Members of EML and EKL are welcome to the exhibition, as well as young artists who have not yet joined the creative unions.
