“…takes us back to a time before digitalisation, when taking photos of leisure time was itself a lively free-time activity.”
Sebastian HosuCurator: Lotte Laub
December 15, 2019 – January 3, 2020
Anca Poterașu Gallery, Bucharest
Leisure Life, Hosu’s first solo exhibition in Bucharest, comprises oil paintings, charcoal drawings and oil-and-charcoal hybrids. His charcoal drawings are themselves reminiscent of photographic negatives, as if light and dark have been interchanged, as if we’re looking at night-time shots, the lighting and motifs suggestive of ominousness and enigma respectively. This stands in contrast to the summery colours of the oil paintings.
