POETIC FORM

POETIC FORM

‘Poetic Form’ presents a curated selection of works by our diverse international roster of artists, each of whom engages both traditional and non-traditional methods to produce visual explorations of language placed within a discourse that crosses boundaries of medium, time, and movement.

Expressing profound emotions by means of understatement and suggestion, each meditative work has its own rhythm, its own visual pattern that begins with a choice of elements as the accordant expression of emotional states.

Working with a broad range of media including sculpture, film and photography, the included artists reflect, evoke or transform the expression of luminous shapes into pure poetic forms, in balance with, and inspired by, the moment when passion weds thought.

Featured artists include DRIFT, which creates delicate kinetic sculptures, immersive installations and performance art pieces that explore the fluctuating relationships between nature, technology and man; Marco Brambilla, who creates site-specific video installations and commercial projects characterized by the elaborate and kaleidoscopic re-contextualization of popular and archival imagery; Robin Broadbent, whose still life photographs deftly command the interplay between light, space, form and shadow to create a startling sense of proportion, scale and dimension; Reginald Sylvester II, who draws inspiration from personal reflections and theories of expressionist artists to create works through deconstructed, dramatized forms that oscillate between abstraction and figuration; and South African photographer Koto Bolofo, whose thematic series captured at home transforms mundane objects into images of unexpected, often surreal, beauty, exhibiting his gift for infusing unlikely subjects with unprecedented grandeur.

"DRIFT proposes a vision of the future in their signature aesthetics; a distinct mix between hi-tech and poetic imagery. This series is about conveying emotion while simultaneously referring to the fact that light lies at the basis of all life. The project can be seen as a critical yet utopian vision on the future of our planet, where two seemingly opposite evolutions have made a pact to survive."

“My work is a study and exploration of objects. I keep things very simple and reduce down to the minimum, with a balance of interest and tension with the negative and positive spaces. I get excited by shape and form and how they interact or repeat – either in a random or organized way.”

- Robin Broadbent

“I could've stuck to a certain type of work for easy success or instant gratification, but what I want for the future is longevity. I want my work to be honest, real, and true to myself.”

“I love using the word ‘photograph’ instead of 'image', 'image' for me is disposable.”
