This exhibition was part of a room exchange program with NEW NOW artspace in Frankfurt. After presenting The Tourist with works by Friedrich Herz in January 2022 (newnowartspace.com), paintings by Gabriel Stoian were now shown in the gimp room in return.
Stoian studied at the College of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. After graduation, his works have been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Vienna, Bucharest, Amsterdam and Rome. His artistic approach is characterized by a superior technique and subtle poetry. In the paintings shown here, Stoian refers not only to the motif of an artistic confession (paintings as letters), but also to the theme of an artistic exchange. Thus, the concept of this exhibition was to take this idea seriously and to respond to it curatorially.
