SETAREH X is pleased to present the first solo exhibition »End or Fin« by Düsseldorf-based artist Björn Knapp. For the formation of his paintings Knapp utilizes photography as an aid.
In the subsequent painterly process, he develops colour-intensive compositions between form and non-form.

Based on photographs that are superimposed onto each other and combined into complex collages, Björn Knapp realizes a new pictorial language which, when transferred to the canvas with systematic precision and vivid colours, evokes a sensually perceivable corporeality.

The ambiguity of the exhibition title finds a correspondence in the open readability of these paintings, which seem to depict something and at the same time do not depict; in which something seems recognizable, yet nothing is clearly defined in terms of motif or representation. The abstract colour fields arouse corporal associations through their organic shapes and flesh-toned colouring, while painterly spatializations create references to landscape.

 Knapp‘s subtle play with the figure-ground relationship, with colour effects, contrasts, and per- ceptual processes creates both familiar and fundamentally new corporal images, implying a pluralistic view of identity and a dissolution of traditional ways of looking at the human body. Ultimately, Knapp‘s images appear as a painterly equivalent to the fragmentation of bodies in an increasingly digitalized world.
