오는 5월 1일부터 마이클 베빌악쿠아(Michael Bevilacqua)의 개인전 “Future Nostalgia” 을 선보입니다.
Bevilacqua는 페인팅, 드로잉, 그래픽 디자인, 애니메이션 및 등 다양한 기법과 장르를 융합하여 다층적인 화면을 만든다. 이러한 이미지는 자신의 취향과 당시에 겪었던 경험에서 비롯되며 ‘우연한 연관성’에 초점을 맞춘다. 우연한 연관성에 의해 선택된 이미지들은 에어브러쉬와 드로잉, 콜라주, 실크스크린 등의 방식을 통해 캔버스에 나열되고 조작된다. 이러한 과정은 그가 직관적으로 경험한 세계이며 자신과 가족, 예술 그리고 이들 세계의 균형을 이루는 내부적 언어이다.
Michael Bevilacqu는 1966 년 미국 캘리포니아 Carmel 에서 태어나 뉴욕에서 거주하며 작업하고 있다. 그의 작품은 뉴욕의 휘트니미술관과 샌프란시스코 현대 미술관을 비롯한 수많은 공공 컬렉션에 소장되어 있다.
We are pleased to present Michael Bavilacqua' exhibition <“Future Nostalgia” > will be held from 1th May to 17th June, 2021.
Referencing his favorite bands, fashion labels, drugs, racing cars, and the like, Michael Bevilacqua’s semi-autobiographical mixed-media works serve as a platform for exposing his cultural preferences. Known for combining high and low culture through elements of painting, drawing, graphic design, animation, and collage, Bevilacqua characteristically works in a saturated palette, covering his glossy canvases with brand logos and doodles.
Michael Bevilacqua was born in Carmel (California, USA), in 1966, works and lives in New York. He attended Long Beach State University and Santa Barbara City College, later continuing his studies at the Cambridge College of Art and Technology in Great Britain.
