Shanghai:  Gérard Rancinan, The Trilogy Of The Moderns

      

September and October were a success for Gérard Rancinan, who had three exhibitions in Shanghai: The Trilogy of the Moderns, A Small Man in a Big world, at the Shanghai Himalayas Museum, and China 83: Out of Blocks! at the Galerie Beaugeste.

Here’s how Rancinan’s studio presented the The Trilogy of the Moderns:

The Trilogy of the Moderns is a Revolution in three acts. Between comedy and tragedy, it paints a picture of a confused humanity, blindly groping in the darkness, guided by an absolute desire for generalised happiness.

Animal Kingdom by Kate Bergin

Kate Bergin is an Australian artist, who works within the still life genre creating paintings that take their inspiration from a wide range of sources including Nicholas Nassim Taleb’s, ‘Black Swan’ and the idea of expecting the unexpected through to Lewis Carroll’s, ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’.

In Bergin’s paintings the animals have come to life, no longer basic hunted food displays/offerings or trophies they now gather on the tabletop as un-still lives. Wild, exotic and everyday animals and objects coming together in the domestic setting. Some appear at ease, some bemused and others look as if they have to perform extraordinary tasks just to be noticed.
The paintings almost always include the black ‘film noir’ telephone, who’s dial reads, Ext 174 In Case of Emergency Dial 170 suggesting, like all good fairy-tales and all seemingly happy domestic settings, that there may be some underlying menace.Kate Bergin born 1968 is an Australian artist graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts in 1992. Her Animal Kingdom paintings are inspired by Leonardo da Vinci, Carl Vernet and Juan Sanchez Cotan

Syncretism Cesar Santos

"I conceive pictures that represent my deepest and most irrational perceptions. Through this I aspire to show images that transmit the impression of paintings of the past, but are imbued with contemporary, fresh concepts as well as my own personal philosophy.

My artistic energy drives me to arrange elusive figures and objects in conceptual designs, yet rendering them in a believable and convincing way. I bring both worlds - theoretical and naturalistic - into communion: taking objects out of their natural context to create a new environment for them, a new reality or world for us”
