Fine art exhibition "REFLECTIONS OF TRUTH“ with Joseph Klibansky at Gallery 2CforART in Salzburg
Salzburg. One week before the start of the Easter festival in Salzburg Gallery 2C for ART presents new works by the Dutch new media artist Joseph Klibansky. The opening with Joseph Klibansky is taking place on Saturday, March 21 at 11am. At the opening we are presenting exclusively Joseph´s portraits of Salzburg and Venice
Joseph Klibansky was born in 1984 in Cape Town. Klibansky’s main points of departure are architecture and the city, particularly the accelerated, compressed and densely populated urban environments of the 21st Century that he smoothly grades into what seems to be a possible glimpse of the future.
The online platform „Artprice“ has introduced Klibansky in October 2014 in its article „The Art market´s youngest stars – five artists under 30“. In 2011 Joseph´s „High Flyers“ climbed to $ 40,000 at Sotheby’s Amsterdam. This was an international record price ever paid for such a young, living artist. In April 2014 his bronze sculpture “Elements of Life” has been auctioned at Phillips de Pury and hammerd of at $ 80,000.
Joseph Klibansky makes large-scale, idealistic digital paintings that are built up through hundreds of layers of photography enriched with acrylic paint on archival cotton paper overlaid with a liquid resin. His work conveys a layering and compression of time, space and place creating new narratives by creating dreamy images of cities, combining past and future, with a dramatic dynamism that for the artist becomes a way of signifying his perception of the rapidly changing digital culture as well as suggesting an unravelling of his personal biography.
