In this particular series Boris Born uses a brighter palette than usual; his lines are more distinct, giving way to angular or organic shapes and their contrasting effects. The result seems like a scene from a landscape, objects, or creatures of a second nature or different planet. In the process of painting, Boris moves freely between mediums and tools: papers, concrete, lacquers, leaves, dust and ashes are some of the many unusual materials he likes. Playing with colours and textures, he paints, spreads, scrubs, stamps and assembles the material onto recovered floor boards.
Boris Born is a German born artist based in London and exhibited in many group and solo shows across the UK and Germany. The private view is on Thursday 29 May at 6.30 – 8.30pm with musical accompaniment by Kay Grant (voice) and Ntshuks Bonga (saxophone) performing improvised pieces.
