Konstnär: Jon HolmMedia: MåleriDatum: 2018

What happens when you start all over again? What happens when you change a concept, alter a pattern and redirect one’s artistry from the golden ratio of figurative orthodoxy to the intentional disarray of this new work?

The artist Jon Holm is investigating this under his alter ego ”Holstam” Fifteen years have passed and the artist wants to experiment again. Holm wants to know what lies at the heart of true artistry. With this exhibition he means to tell the viewer, “This is what I see!” then ask, “What do you feel?”

“Holstam” is the alter ego of both the artist and his artistry, an abstract character of flesh and blood.

Stylistically, Jon Holm is seen by many as a photorealist, an artist who chooses his motifs, materials and presentation along traditional (although by no means conventional) lines.

This view of the artist reflects a conscious choice that Holm made early in his studies at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm, when he digressed from abstract conceptualism to concentrate on its roots in art history. He turned back the clock, in order to learn the craft of figurative painting on an advanced level. What began as an experiment became a body of work.

Adam Lexar visar konst i Lilla Baren på Riche

I denna utställning har Adam arbetat med hur tolkningar kan uppstå mellan människa och maskin. Genom ett datorprogram som styrs av artificiell intelligens har han skapat motiv genom en metod som kallas för “text-to-image". Adam skriver in en mening i programmet som sedan “bygger” en unik bild från en enorm bilddatabas i ett försök att representera denna (Adams) text till en bild. Sedan tolkas dessa (ofta) pixliga bilder genom Adams måleri, vilket blir en slags konversation mellan konstnären och programmet där kommunikationen i form av språk och programmering skapar nya unika typer av bildrepresentation.
