The gallery is pleased to announce A Momentary Stay Against Confusion, a group exhibition featuring recent work by the following Berlin-based artists: Danny Gretscher, Matteo Rovesciato, Guy Rusha, and Andrzej Zielinski.
The exhibition’s title is taken from an essay by the American poet, Robert Frost, in which he famously wrote: the poem “begins in delight, it inclines to the impulse, it assumes direction with the first line laid down, it runs a course of lucky events, and ends in a clarification of life – not necessarily a great clarification, such as sects and cults are founded on, but in a momentary stay against confusion.”
How meaningful is it to apply Mr. Frost’s insight to painting, drawing and sculpture? What new resonances does Mr. Frost’s line assume if the focus sharpens in the direction of portraiture? Portraits if not of individual people, emotions, or objects, then perhaps portraits of an intuited search, undertaken for any number of reasons, which finds resolution only when the unforeseen has been discovered and recorded?
