On January 31 ADN Gallery will inaugurate a double exhibition: Monday by Spanish Judas Arrieta and Fleeting by Croatian Igor Eškinja. Both artists are from the generation of the Seventies but they grew up and developed their creativity in different ways: Arrieta basically uses painting and drawing, along with sculpture and video, to mould eastern pop iconography filtered by western thinking; Eškinja prefers installations and interventions in public spaces which are documented in aseptic pictures stimulating our consideration about the perceptive issue. Arrieta paints and draws his characters on industrial tissues full of bright colors: crossing over lines, the faces are mixed up creating a pop-tasting mass. Eškinja plays with reality and fiction in neutral spaces, with primary colors or with gray and white, using poor materials for his installations, like scotch-tape and dust, coming from everyday-life. Arrieta talks about contemporary restlessness and about the esthetic of chaos and mixture. Eškinja gives attention to problems related to visual way-of-thinking, to perception, to the symbolic space of the gallery and its complex relationships with art world. Common denominator: irony.
