Stephan Doitschinoff in Japan

JUREMA PRETA, Opening on Feb 28
Posted by Gestalten—02/2014

DIESEL Art Gallery and Gestalten proudly announce the opening of JUREMA PRETA, a new solo exhibition by Stephan Doitschinoff, the international acclaimed self-taught artist from Brazil. He has exhibited in museums and galleries in the US, Europe, and South America, including Gestalten Space in September 2012.

Doitschinoff’s art is based on a deeply symbolic code language and iconoclastic religious yet folkloric elements. He offers acid critiques of our modern society that provide glimpses into another political and philosophical dimension. His paintings and other work go beyond superficial religious references to illustrate narratives of denunciation, renunciation, and affirmation.

This spring, Doitschinoff will be exhibiting for the first time in Japan. Curated by Gestalten, JUREMA PRETA features the artist’s own unique universe of icons and symbols through a wide variety of medias, such as works on paper and canvas, lithographs, serigraphs, woodcuts, and porcelain along with some of his short films, showing the versatility of Doitschinoff’s production while embracing his eclectic influences.

In conjunction with the show, visitors are given the opportunity to obtain signed copies of Doitschinoff’s second monograph, CRAS. The book includes impressive close-ups that capture the detail and complexity of his work as well as a series of illuminated texts created specifically for CRAS that illustrate the artist’s philosophy and symbology.
