Yavuz Gallery is proud to announce Planet Telex, Guido Maestri’s fourth solo exhibition with Yavuz Gallery. Bridging landscapes remembered, imagined, digitised, and remixed, the exhibition introduces a new body of work that holds true to Maestri’s landscape tradition; with a familiarity of impasto and gestural brushwork that leads the eye down a path of the wild and everchanging topography of the landscape genre.
Interpreting the ‘landscape’ from a position behind the screen, Maestri sews collaged and fracturing worlds that pivot between the experience and interpretation. Planet Telex conflates images and ideas to investigate the artist’s experience of the natural world so they are plasticised and affected, pixelated and unnatural; drawn from sources other than the real.
In his essay, Dr. Daniel Mudie Cunningham writes, “Maestri sees this sense of intervention as ‘little bits of human creeping in’ to a world rendered alien, though paradoxically, there is scant presence of human and animal life. These largely uninhabited forests, gardens and parks also potentially read as underwater vistas swarming in psychedelic rhythms and hues.”
