Swiss painter Andy Denzler is having his first London solo show at Opera Gallery. Featuring a series oil canvasses and bronze sculptures, the exhibition “Between Here and There” explores the romantic idea of young urban creatives’ existence in the inner city life: a creative mind surrounded by the decay of buildings a search for identity within the fast paced world.
The artist weaves nostalgic photorealism with gestural expression in his style of painting. Through the use of intricate and detailed images, staggered by recurrent flowing horizontal sweeps of the brush, Denzler’s works resemble at once a still from a paused film and a fuzzy dreamlike memory.
Bronze sculptures represent life size urban individuals holding their cellphones or taking a selfie. With the decayed texture, they look suspended in time during their everyday actions.
