From February 12th 2015 3punts Gallery shows the work of Berlin based artist Mathias Vef. Syncretics is Vef‘s first solo show back in Berlin after several international exhibitions.
With his digital collages the artist creates whole worlds starting from simple elements.
He combines growing variations within each generation to digital ecosystems. They are virtually an illusion of the natural but are infused by an abstract artificiality and an urge to shape and create.
Syncretism is the synthesis of two – often religious – philosophies, weltanschauungen, to something new. In Vef‘s work this concept does not only relate to the combination of the natural and artificial, but also to the process of a creation in an evolutionary and generative way, as in contrast to a conscient creation.
