m·w·a·s·o·c | monochromatic with a splash of colors
Event Description:
Cerbera Gallery is proud to present “m·w·a·s·o·c” | monochromatic with a splash of colors during March and April ’18. The exhibition focuses on editions, photographs and paintings from the 1950s to the present day and features renowned national and international artists, including a few local highlights. Except for the center piece by German artist Oliver Ross all other works are monochromatic and focus on one color or hue, including a captivating wall mural by local artist Rif Raf Giraffe – Not Your Friendly Neighborhood Flying Giraffe!

The exhibition also features work by American minimalist sculptor, video artist and painter Richard Serra (born November 2, 1938) who is known for working with large-scale assemblies of sheet metal. Serra was involved in the Process Art Movement. Since 1971, Serra has made large-scale drawings on handmade Hitomi paper or Belgian linen using various techniques. In the early 1970s he drew primarily with ink, charcoal, and lithographic crayon on paper. His primary drawing material has been the paintstick, a wax-like grease crayon. Serra melts several paintsticks to form large pigment blocks.

For the first time in Kansas City: Norbert Frensch (born 1960 in Mainz, Germany) is a German painter. Frensch studied from 1980 to 1986 at the College of Fine Arts in Hamburg. In his conceptual series of works, the artist reflects the phenomena of perception – between visibility and imagination – with the means of painting. The “black” pictures, which have been produced since the beginning of the 1990s, have made Frensch’s work well-known and have appeared in several solo exhibitions in museums internationally. In their sensual presence, the “blacks” take up the genre of still life and vary it with the painterly principle of the Clairobscur in an seemingly endless sequence.

Other exhibited artists include:
