Gallery 70 is pleased to present . “IN paper and plex” , a collective exhibition of three artists Orion Shima, Ergys Zhabjaku dhe Jon Kraja that will run from November 26 , 2019 to January 7th , 2020 with opening reception on November 26, from 18.00 to 20.00 at Gallery 70 Contemporary Art, Rr. Abdi Toptani (at Toptani Center ) Ground Floor .
The artists have selected individual series of works in paper and Plexiglas, in small and medium formats . Works on paper or plexiglass are a process suitable for experiment, unlike the slow and important task of painting a large canvas or a panel. Paper, gave the artists the possibility to develop another skill, making the relationship between hand and eye unusually direct. A rapid artwork on paper reveals a great artist’s genius in an exceptionally fresh manner .
Orion Shima brings eleven figurative artworks of oil paint on paper. His artworks , are like small studies. It reminds you of what Vanja Strukelj , says about Orion Shima while exploring artist’s work “ The viewer finds himself involved in a visual game…and has the opportunity to investigate the relationship between body and the natural element”
Ergys Zhabjaku has selected for the end of the year show , a series of eight artworks in black and white digital printing welded on Plexiglas . Always in search of new media to express his artistic talent, Ergys Zhabjaku surprises and amuses with the themes and the double layer effect created.
Jon Kraja uses acrylic , spray , stamp , brush and pencil on colored and standard paper for his artworks . The abstract artworks of the artist have a fractal character resulting from the interpretation of the shadow left by the objects that he places over paper.
“IN paper & plex “can be visited from Monday to Saturday 17:00 to 19:00 or by appointment.
