On the occasion of ZONA MACO 2018, Galerie Mark Hachem will be presenting a collective exhibition of established and celebrated artists. All artists share an interest in exploring the field of perception, experimenting with colors, lines, movement and materials, to convey peculiar visual effects. They all belong to the Kinetic and Op Art movements, or are inspired by them. Their works of art establish a connection with the surrounding space in a dynamic relationship, also initiating a dialogue with the viewer, who is captured by their hypnotic magnetism. The interest in Kinetic and Op Art is in fact a distinctive trait of Galerie Mark Hachem, as a leading contemporary art gallery. Despite all artists have an individual and unique voice, we can identify a common thread that unifies their works. Soto, Cruz-Diez and Perez Flores share a similar aesthetic, derived from their participation to the Op Art and Kinetic movements. They all focus their attention on shapes, colors and lines, however stressing various aspects of perception: sometimes linked to movement, at other times stressing the relationship of the artwork with space and time, or even simply presenting a scientific approach to the viewer’s perception of the visual effects conveyed by the artwork. Di Teana's "architectural sculptures" and the chromatic vibrations of Asis, Perez-Flores, Cruz Diez and Soto’s are among the greatest examples of an artist's life: an intuition that becomes continuous, unique research, and whose plastic responses overwhelm our sensitivity without any limit of time. All the artists the gallery will be representing are widely recognized, as their works appear in several public and private collections. However, they all have remained faithful to their artistic inspiration and expression.
