This event has ended.

Amos Eno Gallery presents Jose-Ricardo Presman’s latest installation, I Plant-Gravity and Levity, which will engage the gallery space with a coherent assembly of vibrant acrylic- on-canvas works.

Plant life has been drawn and painted by artists in many different styles from the hyper-realistic to the most abstract. The challenge for the artist as well as the scientist is the elusive task of intuiting the source of life itself.

Substances that contain life as their main defining characteristic, such as plants, can only be described as being governed by a more comprehensive fundamental law than inanimate objects. They can’t solely be defined by Euclidean laws, but also in reciprocal non-Euclidean terms. As a consequence, a stone when thrown seeks a hypothetical center point of earth by the force of gravity, whereas a plant seeks to expand towards peripheral planes above, by observing the “laws of levity”. Projective geometry is an example of the results of this type of fluid, life-imbued experience. This installation is a creation that imagines a life force at its core, reduced to image and lustre colors in acrylics on canvas, and revolving around 12 vantage points.
