Arik Levy “Solo Show – Uncontrolled Nature”
Louise Alexander Gallery, Porto Cervo, Italy
13/06/2014 to 01/08/2014
It has been over 15 years since artist Arik Levy began investigating the relationship between humans, social codes, nature, feelings and science – each a constant interpretation of the links, tension and content that results with a remarkable ensemble of statements.
In the upcoming solo show at Louise Alexander Gallery, Levy’s new works follow a process of pieces collected like how a biologist would collect, species of his own imagination.
Not without reference to the past body of works, the juxtaposition of these new and past oeuvres enhance the facts that Levy’s works are not only an evolution of his own doing but also unwritten formulas of past-future thinking and involvement in every day life experiences. – works in constant evolution of a never ending process.
Arik Levy’s first exhibition at Louise Alexander will present a wide range of sculptures like a trail of landmarks in ones autobiography alongside paintings and other artworks.
RockTripleShift and RockTripleFusion Vertical are pieces that will be shown for the first time to juxtapose the past as well as show the future.
These pieces contradict each other, a contrast between fusion and separation, a landslide of feelings and reunification – a representation of horizontality and verticality.
The works also connect to Levy’s most recent installation at the Atomium in Brussels featuring among others a monumental RockGrowth in colour and mirror polished stainless steel ends.
