P|Art Ibiza presents “Illusions”, an exhibition where Ana Rajcevic and Okuda San Miguel’s sensorial art holds centre stage.
The new show, the gallery’s thirtieth in five years hosting international artists, kicks off Friday 21 September at 8.00pm. Patrizia Longarini describes the pair’s approaches to art as “anchored in illusory phenomena”.
As gallery owner Patrizia Longarini sees it, “Illusions” uses this new reality to show “how mutating art stimulates the observer, creating a perception of objects and movements with no basis in reality”. That, she says, is how “the art takes on a magical power and finesses a sort of cosmic illusion where the colour and shape of objects change and mutate”. The result? “One of a kind pieces”. As part of the exhibition, P Art Ibiza will welcome both the futuristic mutations of Rajcevic and the colourful, kaleidoscopic universe that Okuda occupies. Longarini paints the pair as “brilliant visionaries in a too flat world” whose “innovative and electrifying work sets them apart from the pack”.
Longarini notes that “art is continuity” and turns to a quote by Leonardo Da Vinci when invoking the opening’s broader context: “The artist doesn’t investigate the nature of the physical world; she investigates the nature of our relationship with it”.
