Gregor Gleiwitz‘s expansive paintings that comprise his new exhibition at SETAREH, Sun Script, are an internalized exploration of the natural world, caught in the glare of the sun, as an aesthetic contemplation of our place in the universe.

One work in particular resonates this glare, a spotted surface reminiscent of looking directly at the sun with closed eyelids. Layers over layers of heavily diluted, glossy paint, interrupted by swirls and scrapes of a palette knife which create a material memory of the painting process, forming orbs and biomorphic shapes, bathed in light. The objects depicted are familiar and tangible, yet hardly discernible as they float across the canvas. They fluctuate placidly or whirl feverishly in the indefinite dimensions at this intersection of abstraction and figuration. Rendered in highly expressive, gestural brushstrokes, they are impressions from the world making its way around the sun, which according to the artist, is able to transform our perspective of it.
