It is with great pleasure we are now able to present a new show with Robert Proch and Chazme thrilled about the new extravagant development in their work.
Over the many years of cooperation, we are very happy to see the many collectors following the two of them, and the recognition they have gained worldwide.
Working with Robert Proch for 9 years, in our opinion he expresses himself in a very unique way, bridging the gap between fine arts and the new urban movements. With enormous energy, detail and 3 dimensional compositions, you always recognize the work of the artist, no matter whether you see it in his paintings or murals.
At the upcoming show there'll also be a number of collaboration pieces by the two artists, with Chazme underlining the abstract parts in Proch's artwork and Robert Proch adding narratives to the geometrical compositions of Chazme.
A brilliant mix!
FROM DUSK TIL DAWN
About the show Robert Proch tells the following:
With an analysis of the metropolis Chazme and Robert Proch are back with their ongoing analysis of the concept of the metropolis as an organism, keeping a strong relation to the latest from at KIRK Gallery "Brutalismopolis Chronicles".
This time, the main focus aims at aspects of night life.
"People trapped in the city, part of a strictly programmed machine in an unbreakable cycle.
Chazme unveils the city facade, the structure, a complex mechanism of cubes where lights and shadows are playing rhythmical tricks. It’s a strictly programmed machine that lives in an unbreakable cycle. Inside this machinery, countless individuals struggle in this repetitive scenario.
Proch reveals intimate scenes where people, trapped in the mechanism, release their own demons in the night.
Using the titles of the works for the show to elaborate;
"This exhibition sets up a scene, a representation of Saturday evenings at 7 p.m. Outside, the sun slowly melts from "Blood Orange" into "Red Dusk" and natural outdoor light again repeats its losing competition with the artificial, as countless "City Lights" take hold, lighting up the streets. Anonymous inhabitants rush to finish closing up for the day - they feel like, again, they have been waiting all bloody day in their "Escape rooms‘" for this moment. Redlight runners have no time to loose in crossing traffic, so they skip like crazy between obstacles like characters in a video game. Clubs, Pubs, and parks are welcoming all "Light seekers" ... again.
The gatherings warp into an indistinguishable, endless parade as "Selfies" and "Fight clubs", whiz by...it will still take few hours before it collapses under its own strength.
In the meantime, others passionately squeeze their "Pillows" and chase their own private "Concrete Dreams". "Lazy Sunday" slowly arrives with its "Hang-overs" and consequences. But, in the middle of it all, there are places where no one goes to sleep. Night and day are tucked in a constant "Coma". The man in the high castle and the 24 hour casino are always focused on what they are meant to be... Hungry for more .."
Welcome to a unique show!
