The Blue Truck – Purvis Young

Purvis Young has been recognized as one of the masters of this
broadly defined nonacademic genre of ‘outsider art’. His work possesses a
singularly raw form of aesthetic power and through the decades he has
developed an astounding  oeuvre, out of which the owner was able to acquire a
range of true highlights, in early 1997, while he visited Miami.

The above painting features one of Purvis Young’s favorite subjects: Trucks

In a very expressive fashion he paints this blue truck, as if it is not a solid mass of metal, but rather a breathing life mass rolling into an either urban environment still under construction or a cemetery of destroyed high rises in a dystopian world. We guess it’s up to the viewer to decide.

PAVEL ODVODY – Photography

Mesmerized Movement: The Subtle Handling of Light in Pavel Odvody’s Work

This recently published book documents the black and white photography by Pavel Odvody (*1953) which fuses sensibility, memory and fantasy in an original manner. His exploration of the psyche, beyond the body, is what gets under the observer’s skin. Moments of nakedness, staged in magical double exposures, wraithlike patterns or silhouettes of light, reveal the human being in their multifaceted manifestation.
