We are delighted to announce Z Angles Gallery's participation to START Art Fair with a solo show of the young painter Tamás Todor.
The artist (born 1989) is part of the great resurgence in painting which is such an important feature of the Cluj art scene. He takes a figurative approach and uses a rich expressive language. Tamás Todor’s painting is overflowingly instinctive. While in earlier years he was concerned with surreal landscapes, in his recent canvases he has returned to his immediate environment – which is sufficiently surreal in itself: the haunts of his childhood, the trashy playgrounds and the abandoned surroundings of his concrete block neighbourhood. These landscapes colud refer to the post-communist Romanian reality, yet Tamás is presumably more interested in individual history.
Z Angles Gallery is founded in 2016 and for its first year of activity is planned to be a mobile gallery with projects and collaborations organized with/in other art institutions. It is a year of warming up, travelling, creating new contacts with artists and professionals. Not being limited to a given space but searching proper places to think exhibitions as site specific installations for the artist’s work this nomadism will also challenge the ways we communicate in a permanently changing social landscape.
START Art Fair is a platform that shines a spotlight on emerging artists and new art scenes. Organized by Parallel Contemporary Art and Saatchi Gallery, START takes place across all three floors of Saatchi Gallery and aims to enable collectors, curators, and the greater public to discover new artistic talent.
