SETAREH X is proud to present Eine Möglichkeit zu schauen, a solo exhibition by Eiko Gröschl. The exhibition showcases a series of atmospheric and melancholic works that bring forth human existentialist emotions of life through ghostly figures, animals, and barren environments. In Eiko Gröschl’s paintings, we find vulnerability and truth in the scenes that he pulls from his personal experiences.

The figures that Eiko Gröschl portrays are silhouetted, appearing as incomplete and desolate. The figures have been made with smeared pastel markings, depicting tapering limbs belonging to slightly opaque bodies. The comforts and the displeasures of daily life are highlighted in wistful and fleeting moments such as in “Sleepy Walk” where a figure sits alone on a bed and gazes at something unknown. Two trucks during the night in “Am Weg gesehen,” or a dark figure that is dwarfed by a large tree in “Lacken, Reflektion” imply a sense of alienation that looms in the atmosphere of each painting like a stalking shadow. The purposeful positioning of the figures on the fringes of the painting and the obscuring of individual identities heightens the palpable auras of loneliness and isolation. An optimistic gloominess, emotive while ruthlessly exposed, is embedded in his portrayal of existentialist longing, both hypnagogic and nostalgic.
