Gieler - May 31 to July 1, 2018
Lilac Gallery New York is pleased to present “Recollections” an exhibition of works by Gieler. An extraordinary body of works of fine art collage with mixed media with his latest works that beautiful color patterns portraying the pop icons of our times.
Gieler is able to create a completely unusual and powerful body of work by using rebellious and nostalgic plays on icons of the past and present such as Brigitte Bardot, Kate Moss, Muhammed Ali, and Claudia Schiffer. Working on mostly larger canvases, the presence of these pop pieces make a dramatic statement; but once looking closer at the details, the viewer is able to discover exciting, rich textures by the many layers of selected hand pulled posters from the city. Gieler's evolving fascination with the voice of Amsterdam is now expanding to new cities such as Barcelona, Ibiza, and New York. He aims to participate environments of the world into his pieces by using considerable efforts to bring the two together. His journey through the cities on bicycle leaves him soaking up the backdrop of the streets, which then, later on, translates into the passion he puts into creating his compositions. The result is a refreshing take on pop art that excites the viewer with strong suggestions of color, texture, and design.
