WOLFE VON LENKIEWICZ: HIERONYMUS BOSCH7. Sep - 4. Oct 12 / ended All Visual Arts
Preview: 6th September 7- 9 pm
Wolfe von Lenkiewicz has transformed Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights into a post-historic, trans-cultural manuscript. At first glance von Lenkiewicz’s work appears to be a faithful reproduction of the original, but on closer inspection it is ‘contaminated’ with imagery from a wide range of historical and contemporary sources, both art historical and pop cultural. Diverse and contradictory images have been smuggled into the already dense and multilayered scene; from a screaming head by Bacon to clusters of brightly coloured Pokemon characters. They share the space of a painted universe but are unknowing of each other’s existence.
