Soy Capitán is pleased to debut Saint Fauxpas, a solo exhibition by Dirk Lange.


Lange (b. 1972) draws richly detailed, multilayered works in muted colors and large formats. His dreamlike scenarios present viewers with people or magical, hybrid creatures in the midst of seemingly incomprehensible or paradoxical actions. On closer inspection, a variety of structures then emerge: patterns reminiscent of molecular orders, but also character fonts, geometric or physical shapes resembling celestial bodies. The pictorial narrative is therefore situated between smallest and largest, between micro- and macrocosm. Overlapping, rhythmic details reveal the enigmatic pictorial narrative itself to be part of self-contained ornaments. The depicted action is seemingly less an expression of rational motivation than a result of the inherent movement of cosmic orders. The title of the exhibition, Saint Fauxpas, imbues the mishap with religious meaning, alluding to a deeper story behind our misguided actions.
