Exhibition: "Night Cruise"
Artist: Marek Ormandík
Vernissage: May 3rd 2018 at 18:30
Finissage: June 30th 2018 at 17:00

Venue: Bellart Gallery
Address: Fasangasse 42, 1030 Vienna

The "Night Cruise" in an artistic implementation by Marek Ormandík (* 1968) is a disturbing and extremely critical expedition to human prejudice, fears and aversions of the stranger, the incomprehensible, the non-European that is, just about anything else that is not corresponding to our Pharisaic well-being. Ormandík is the most important representative of a neoexpressive painting in Slovakia. In the "Night Cruise" he speaks impulsively about himself and his own position on the refugee situation in Europe. His pictures are neither a moralizing view nor a populist rant, but a profound confrontation with the phenomenon of the suffering of the fleeing people. His art is a conscious empathy for the flight-weakened human body. Two themes dominate this cycle: the people fleeing on boats and the personification of the floating refugee as Christ (considered a savior in the Christian tradition). The subjects are presented in a composition that disputes classical iconography. In his intimate and formally intensive work, he shows himself with his family in a rubber boat somewhere in the darkness of the nocturnal Mediterranean. The image of a man who is in the water with several others in a swimming ring, reaching out to draw our attention, raises the question of whether we recognize in him a Christ to be rescued or an uncertain threat?


Exhibitions: IVAN ILLOVSKY - "THE QUESTIONED POSITION OF PHYSICS"
CHRISTIAN ZILLNER - "TOPOLOGY OF METAPHYSICS"
Vernissage: March 3rd 2018 at 17:30 and 18:30
Finissage: April 14th 2018 AT 17:40 and 18:30
Venue: Bellart Gallery
Address: Fasangasse 42, 1030 Wien

With Illovský and Zillner the Bellart Gallery presents two quite fascinating art positions. The Slovak artist Ivan Illovský uses glass objects to capture the tensions between glass and metal with scientific invention. The Austrian visual artist Christian Zillner operates on a very different level also with areas of tension. Just as Illovsky succeeds in reshaping the fatal discrepancy between the expansion of the metal and the fragile fragility of glass into an impressive balance, Zillner creates with his pictures biblical places, very complex philosophical questions of ontology, the mythological and the factuality of the fictition to deliver. Two solitary positions find an intersection in their individual approach to rationality and empiricism, which seeks its balance in the artistic diversity of postmodernism.


Exhibition: "Narrative borders of Constructivism"
Artist: Ján Vasilko
Vernissage: January 17th 2018 at 18:30
Finissage: February 28th 2018 at 18:30
On view: From January 17th until February 28th 2018
Venue: Bellart Gallery
Address: Fasangasse 42, 1030 Vienna, Austria

The work of this young artist shook the Slovak art scene after the turn of the millennium to an unprecedented extent. A special confirmation of the quality of the art production outside of the metropolitan cultural centralism of Bratislava was already achieved in his final year of the art faculty at the Technical University in Košice in 2005. In the same year, Ján Vasilko won one of the most important artist prize in Slovakia (Price of O. Čepán) and and that despite the format, which is strongly focused on conceptual art. This fact proves for the time being two theses, firstly that we are dealing here with an exceptional artist and secondly that his industrial-constructivist stylistics in the medium of an image conceals much more than an effective phenomenon of geometric-abstract aesthetics. It is a unique opportunity to engage with this exceptional painting.


Exhibition: "Unconcrete Objectivity – Painting and Sculpture"
Artist: Igor Faško
On view: November 23rd till December 31st 2017
Vernissage: 23. November 2017 at 18:30
Venue: Bellart Gallery
Address: Fasangasse 42, 1030 Vienna, Austria

Igor Faško * 1967 is a Slovak artist born in Germany (Treuenbrietzen), who in his pictures and objects represents an independent postmodern direction of constructive stylistics. As a graduate of architecture at the Technical University in Bratislava and in addition to working as an architect in Germany, but also in Vienna, as well as in artist studios, Igor has decided to devote himself mainly to the fine arts.His work, which is represented in several private and state collections, impresses with a formal and polychromatic mode of expression. He transforms the attributes of his inner world, such as the love of alternative music genre of the seventies, poetry and the philosophy of art, into a code language that is identifiable by always present spatial structure, chromatic chord formation and highly abstracting.


Exhibition: "Sublime nature - wretched man"
Artist: Jozef Srna
On view: July 1st - August 31st 2017
1st vernissage: July 6th 2017 at 18:30
2nd vernissage: August 3rd 2017 at 18:30
Venue: Bellart Gallery
Address: Fasangasse 42, 1030 Wien

Jozef Srna (*04.03.1979) is a Slovak artist who represents the generation of newly discovered painting the millennium. With an unadulterated approach to format and figure, in his monumental works he conveys obscure scenes of the moral diminution of the human. In contrast to this narrative level of his art, in which he confronts us with stories of obscene ceremonies and critical reports about the sociocultural situation of society, he devotes himself to romantic landscape painting. We would like to present both positions of his art in the Bellart Gallery.

In the newly extended premises of our gallery, the figurative paintings as well as the works of the romantic landscapes are displayed. These are both baroque compositions with postmodern semantics as well as energetic representations of lakes, wind circles and sun heat in a modern paraphrase by Claude Lorraine and William Turner. The artist Jozef Srna, who is represented in many state and private collections, is now presented for the first time in Vienna.

The exhibition "Sublime Nature - Wretched Man" is an ideal opening exhibition of the new concept of Bellart Gallery. Let yourself be enchanted by the charms of color-intensive nature and provoked by the scenes of the humble humanity. This contrast is effective and is highly recommended!
