Urban Spree Galerie presents « The be(Longing) », the 3rd solo exhibition of Tel-Aviv based artist Klone with Urban Spree Galerie.
After a decade exploring the medium of paper, « The be(Longing) » marks the return of the artist to the medium of canvas. Bringing his spray can technique of shadows and gradients to perfection, Klone paints monochrome compositions where the matter of the canvas blends into geometric shapes and abstract landscapes.
« The be(Longing) is an investigation of hybrid identity, a portal into a parallel realm tucked away from the increasingly globalized and visually homologized world. Set against the backdrop of dark gallery walls, restless portraits and landscapes can be peered at, stripped of all contextual clues, the painful human relation between object-subject tugs at the primal root of abstraction. There are no nouns in this landscape, everything is a verb, the gaze is an action. » Mika Bar-On Nesher
A few signed copies of the latest artist’s monograph – « FEWMOMENTSAGOIWASHERE », looking over the last 8 years of exhibitions, mural projects, installation, and animations, will be available at the opening.
Klone (b.1983) is an Ukrianian-born, Tel-Aviv based street artist, a pioneer of graffiti in Israel and a visual artist
