Life is beautiful. But is it? And how do we fit into this whole thing?
The new show at Deptford Does Art, in conjunction with Blue Bee Gallery, features the artwork of two emerging artists. Stefan Finsinger and Angy Avendano artwork reflect on how they fit into society but with different feelings of melancholy and feistiness.
Stefan Finsinger, an abstract artist, lives and works in SE16 London. Stefan’s work has a melancholy feel as his artwork is a reflection on the monotone pattern of life. Is it beautiful and comforting or ugly and depressing? Are glimpses of another life a reality or are they a mass fabricated, attention seeking universes of promotional marketing material? Can we trust the greener grass or shall we be happy with the gentle supporting, perhaps overlooked wings which span over us?
Angy Avendaño, a feminist artist, lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She comes from a feistier side and reflects on her role as a woman in society. How does she perceive herself and how do others perceive her? What are her aspirations and how do others evaluate them. Women can be presidents. Women can fly to the moon. Women can reinvent technology and science. But are they expected to? Will they still have to fight the prejudices of socities first, smash glass ceilings before they can start focusing on a career?
Both artists work with monochrome paintings on a colourful background. Fine liner hand painted, digitalised and edited to perfection. All artwork is available as limited edition giclée printed on German Etching Paper in A2 size. Both artists have been producing art for a while. But, only recently curator and gallerist Jean Mora discovered them and started to represent them at Blue Bee Gallery.
