NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

In the exhibition, Mauri Gross's lush bush and flower motifs of recent years are intertwined with his monochrome minimalism series, highlighting both their technical and substantive nuances through contrasts.

The result is a kind of layered traditionalism and a new product, which consists of over-painting the surface painted to the smallest detail.

In doing so, Gross also touches on the theme of mercy, which he has interpreted in his earlier work in various contexts – painting as a work, the question of the death of painting, self-sacrificing antique heroes carved in stone.

The hypnotizing effect in Gross’s works lies in the fragmentation of the paintings, in entering the picture through the details and sticking to it in a good way. If in the past the artist has used this tool in his so-called cherry rain series, where when he starts to study the dense berry matter more closely, the ability to capture the whole disappears and the viewer absorbs only one berry at a time. It’s like a spring expense – perennial and – layered, at times yellowed and dried up, on the other by long green grass cells
