Ivan Mangov: Strings of Spirits with an appearance by the artist on January 14 or with gallery reps on subsequent Saturdays.
Washington D.C. based painter and architect Ivan Mangov creates oil on canvas paintings using a complex technique of multilayered underpainting. After capturing with a camera all the stages of his work, he creates videos, that aim to provide a quick insight into a slow and gradual process of painting that takes many months. Thanks to this uncommon technique he is able to create strata composed of rich textures with strong coloristic features. Depicted characters that emerge and disappear gradually from and into an abstract matter are going through changes that occur in nature: processes of creation, corrosion, erosion and dissolution.
