NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND
September 29 – October 20, 2018
TUES – SAT | 1PM – 5PM & By Appointment
Opening Reception with Georg Óskar
Friday, September 28 | 6PM – 9PM
On September 28, EXCAVO Fine Arts will open Notes From Underground, an exhibition of new works by Icelandic born, Berlin-based Artist Georg Óskar, Curated by Moira McKee.
With a raw approach and a murky palette, Óskar depicts isolated subjects engaged in surreal, dream-like scenarios where a palpable tension exists between wildness and civilization, recalling the primitivism of Rousseau and Gauguin.
Óskar offers observations on an existential human experience in a state of crisis with wryness and dark humour, developing narratives that taint quiet, introspective moments with undercurrents of paranoia or placing recognizable, fictional characters into mundane, often ironic scenarios that culminate in crooked representations.
Following completion of his MFA from the Bergen Academy of Art & Design in Norway, Óskar has exhibited Internationally in Spain, Germany, China, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland with upcoming Solo Exhibitions in 2019.
This will be Óskar’s first time exhibiting in North America, returning to Berlin, October 1st.
