Ein herausragendes Element des Malprozesses ist der Rhythmus, in dem sich die Herstellung eines Werkes vollzieht. Rhythmische Strukturen generieren den Malprozess als eine mehr oder minder geregelte Bewegung in Raum und Zeit. Sie geben dem Anbringen von Farben auf Flächen eine Form.

An outstanding element of the process of painting is the rhythm in which the fabrication of an art work is accomplished. Rhythmical structures generate the process of painting as a more or less determinated movement in space and time. It gives form to the application of colors on surfaces.

Cologne project space Bruch & Dallas is hosting a special event entitled ‘EUROPA’ in July 2017. The initiator of this exhibition is artist and curator Dr. Billy Gruner, who lives and works in the Blue Mountains in Australia for MAP Projects and RNPG. He is the founder of several Australian contemporary art spaces dedicated to reductive art.

In 2017 RNPG is travelling Europe presenting shows focusing on artists who use the social media page Reductive Non Objective Private Gallery. The artist and curator Billy Gruner has friendship and a working relationship with the Konsortium artists dating back to 2003.

RNPG stands for Reductive Non Objective Private Gallery. It is a unique social media site where quality reductive art makers present works and connect with each other. As a result this year RNPG is doing a range of shows looking at circles of activity, and styles of production across Europe.

Billy Gruner is the founder of SNO and of MAP, or Modern Art Projects in Sydney. The style of shows he prefers are simple. Member artists are invited to supply a work and hold an opening together. Some more local makers come attend while others follow on social media. An opening is held, talks are given. Importantly, the area of expertise of the curator has been in the resurgence of reductive art after the 20th century and he, like other artists within a broad coterie of producers have participated in developing what he describes as the arrival of a new genre. As such, Gruner is connected to many developmental spaces. The artist defines this under the a rubric, Post Formalism. At the Cologne group show Gruner will talk about the stupendous rise of the reductive art genre after the 20th century, and why that shift has a special importance for German art making in particular, Concrete Art and the like.

At the openings artists can also speak, and have special ideas outlined. The RNPG EUROPA show will include an array of art makers whose works are photographed and placed on social media. RNPG is designed to be modern, highly fluid and relaxed.

RNPG IS currently presenting shows in Holland, Germany, and Australia in association with IS-Projects, MAP, A9e and the newly established KNO in Kiev.

STEVE COLEMAN ON OLEKSIY KOVAL’S PAINTING

October 28, 2011 Oleksiy Koval invited me to participate in an exhibition involving music and painting. To be sure, music and painting projects have been presented many times throughout thousands of years. However, this particular collaboration was to focus on rhythm.

But what does this mean? It is clear what rhythm can be in musical terms, but not so clear in the discipline of painting. Through correspondences and meetings, I discussed these concepts with Oleksiy, and we found that we had many ideas in common.

I have always been drawn to creating music based on analogies with the natural world, and although Oleksiy’s ideas may not be this exactly, in my opinion some kind of analogies do exist in his work, or maybe I create them in my mind when viewing his paintings. However, this is not much different from the listener of music, where the sounds also stimulate the imaginations of individual audience members to create different visual fantasies in each person.

So, my own relationship to Oleksiy’s paintings are based on my own internal creations, stimulated by the shapes and colors in the paintings. And for me, there is rhythm in the placement, arrangement and relationship of these visual elements, just as rhythm in music is the same with sonic elements.

Music is a dynamic art, meaning it is always moving. The final result of a painting is not moving except in the mind of the viewer (or more precisely, it is not moving relative to the viewer). But there is also the rhythm in the act of painting, i.e., the rhythm of the gestures and technique that produce the painting, which is in motion. And, similar to music, through these gestures, ideas of meter, tempo, pulse relationships, etc., can be explored.

It’s in these areas that rhythm ideas can be explored through a kind of cross-discipline ensemble of musicians and painters. My most recent recording explores musical analogies of the biological rhythms of the human body. Several of Oleksiy’s paintings remind me of the themes that I have been exploring. Since we are ourselves a manifestation of Nature, any of our activities will in some way be connected to these natural rhythms. However, when a person is aware of their connection to Nature, then the rhythmic gestures of both the sonic and visual artists is in better alignment to the rhythms of Nature.

These are some of the thoughts and impressions that I feel, and that run through my mind while I am viewing Oleksiy’s paintings. From my point of view, these paintings can, similar to music, trigger an initial environment of mind and emotion, which can act as the substrate for the experience of an expanded awareness of the connection of all rhythmic activity.

CORNWALL INTENSIVE WEEK 3-10 JUNE 2017

In EVENTS | VERANSTALTUNGEN on June 15, 2017 at 6:14 pm

Dear Oleksiy Koval,

Artwork as an Event: Symposium June 3-10 2017
I am writing on behalf of the Contemporary Arts Practice Group to invite you to participate in the Artwork as an Event: Symposium here at the University of Hertfordshire from June 3 – 10 2017. The event is hosted by the Contemporary Art Practice Group of the School of Art and Design.

The aim of the symposium is to bring together a group of artists to discuss and develop the concept of the Artwork as an Event. The project includes practice-led research and develops the idea of “field-work” for artist practitioners and research involving collaborations through which the participating artists share insights into their research and methodologies. It is planned that the outcomes are presented at an international exhibition/public symposium in 2017-2018. The symposium provides an opportunity to initiate debate and make site-based artwork around questions of the ‘event’: what constitutes an artwork as event and is the ‘event’ an act or trace or both? By looking at the artwork as subject to time/site/contexts and (re)arrangements this project will consider how work happens as much in action as it does in the way it is shown and presented. We will initially consider a range of new strategies which would allow new methodologies to emerge while acknowledging the complex and temporary nature of artworks as events. Underlying the aims of the symposium is the opportunity to have time working together in order to individually ‘tailor’ the eventual research project so that it is reflects the nature of each participant’s practice.

Yours sincerely,

Alison Dalwood
Senior Lecturer in Fine Art
School of Art and Design
University of Hertfordshire

THESE 7 CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS FROM MUNICH SHOULD BE ON YOUR RADAR

We’re delighted to tell you that Oleksiy Koval was picked by Culture Trip as one of our Munich Local Favorites 2017.

If Sam Taylor-Johnson’s A Little Death is your thing or you can’t get enough of Takashi Murakami’s installations, then a trip to Munich is in order. As well as 80 museums and a plethora of contemporary art galleries, there are some brilliant contemporary artists marking their mark on the art world that you need to know about. Here are seven names to keep an eye out for.

Oleksiy Koval

Making the move from Ukraine to Munich, Koval brings a variety of cultural influences and artistic styles to his work both as a practising artist and guest speaker at philosophy lectures at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts. His work often revolves around grids, where neat rows are disturbed by overlapping lines fighting for space or erratic paint dabs. The wide variety of materials Koval uses as a base is a striking element of his work – anything from cotton to MDF is his canvas.
