Misha Hollenbach "Snagliature" exhibition at Utopian Slumps

Misha Hollenbach

Opening Saturday 2 June, 4 – 6pm
Saturday 2 until Saturday 23 June 2012

Like a dancer walking into Starbucks with toes pointed towards an irrepressible angle, a painter can never remember how to forget how to paint.

…The persistent and blissful attraction of painting seems to be that, like thought, its edges are invisible to itself. Somewhere between communication and marginal expression, this dance-with-European-processed-meat takes place. The studio, here, is receptacle for inexplicable impulses and for graphic intent. For design and desire.

Liv Barrett, 2012

Snagliature will present a new body of paintings from Misha Hollenbach, MEATSLAP, formed through a gestural and spontaneous method where paint is incidentally slapped on luxe prints on Canson high gloss paper using various processed meats. Juxtaposing these works will be a series of sculptures forming an extension of Hollenbach’s recent automatic ceramics – heavily glazed in cracked black, white and gold tones.

Snagliature will take place at Utopian Slumps from 2 June to 23 June 2012.
