GALERIE VON&VON is pleased to show works by Isa Dahl and Leszek Skurski at paper positions Berlin from April 28 to May 01, 2022.
The unifying element between both artistic positions is the reduction to the essential, paper works that unfold their full effect minimalist in black - white and in the case of Leszek Skurski in exceptional cases also with a few color accents.
During Gallery Weekend Berlin, paper positions Berlin invites international galleries to present their currently most incisive positions from contemporary and modern art with a focus on drawings and the material paper. Drawings, collages, silhouettes, texts, photographs, artist books and objects will be shown in an open exhibition format, without demarcating booths.

A vast, seemingly infinite plain forms the foundation for the scene: As if from nowhere, people appear on the surface of the image. They emerge from layers rich in nuances of light white or hazy gray, leaving plenty of room for interpretation. The artist Leszek Skurski, who is a native of Poland, repeatedly devotes his paintings to figurative storytelling. In his works, he depicts many stories, that remain open-ended and allow the most diverse interpretations. They are paintings depicting narratives that seem to have paused or stopped in action, and Skurski captures these forms with a narrative density. Many evanescent moments of our existence and interactions are captured on the canvas like excerpts or snapshots between their occurrence and disappearance. Hence, the images of the artist, who lives and works in Fulda, are reminiscent of film stills or still images that outline a content, character, or mood.
