Yavuz Gallery is pleased to present Mindscapes, a solo exhibition of recent works by Sri Lanka-based Belgian artist Saskia Pintelon. In a series of large-scale paintings exhibited for the first time in Asia, vibrant colours serve as an abstraction of the multitude of emotions and ruminations that pervade the human mind, and that incessant stream of consciousness in all of us that is so hard to silence or ignore.
Pintelon is best known for her raw and deeply personal works that interpret the collective human experience, environment and the cycle of life, typically executed in a monochrome palette of muted colours and shades of black and grey.
Mindscapes marks a vivid and explosive return of colour to her visual repertoire after a long period of absence. Here, colour serves not simply as a mode of expression, but also as a guiding force in creation. Pintelon describes the making of these works as cathartic and almost trance-like. She likens her application of colour on canvas to a chef throwing ingredients into a curry, constantly adding and adjusting, feeling and savouring, organically creating a colourful, mysterious ‘hotpot’ with mastery of technique.
