Galerie Openspace Presents: SatOne "Mirror Cabinet" (Paris, France)

Read from the press release below:

Exhibition from November 3 until December 1, 2018
Opening on November 3, 2018 from 6 to 9 pm

GALERIE OPENSPACE – 116, boulevard Richard Lenoir, Paris 11e
Rafael Gerlach has been renowned in the graffiti world for the 90s under the name of SatOne. SatOne has been exhibiting his artworks since the beginning of the institutionalization of the urban art movement in historic exhibitions like Urban Discipline, in 2002, next to artists like Os Gemeos, Daim, Banksy…
Based on experimental approaches, SatOne has forged a rich and free abstract aesthetics open to personal analysis and rooted in a powerful chromatism. Travel and context are central in the artist’s career. In both the studio and the street, his pictorial work draws inspiration from the essence of places in an almost impressionist way.
In the course of two years, the German artist has painted over 20 walls all throughout the world, more stunning one after the other, with a growing visibility in France. He is about to present second solo show at Galerie Openspace after his Key Stimulus exhibition in 2016. For his new solo show in Paris, SatOne has looked to push even further the frontiers of his plastic approach which fuels on the abandoned places that have inspired and welcomed graffiti artists and urban explorers for decades.
This new body of works stands at the crossroad between the past, the present and the future in the form of additions and subtractions of layers of material. The impactful emotional language of SatOne’s abstract paintings originates in this palimpsest-like layering process.
Each of us can have a different and subjective appreciation of SatOne’s work, abstraction being defined by its refusal to impose one single reading. It is open to the field of possibilities. It is a freedom enjoyed by both the artist and the viewer. And from this freedom a feeling emerges: serenity.
