Emanual Röhss: T293
Via dei Tribunali, 293, 80138 Napoli, Italy
March 21- June 30, 2014
Currently on view at T293 in Naples, Italy is “May Hands,” a solo exhibition by Emanuel Röhss. The concept for the exhibition was born of the idea of putting together works that tell a story starting from objects whose identity is designated by their recognisability as consumer icons or by the way they belong to someone and are incorporated in their personal realm. The narratives embedded within the works are readable between the lines and each part points out relationships that may not at first be visible. The works are constructed through an engagement with a methodology of painting whose objective is emphasized adding literal space, as it happens with “May Hands” or through a layering of chromatic information related to specific people and mediated through a language of color field. As a response to the social climate, cultural norms and history, each work by Röhss is based on a person, real or fictional.
