KochxBos presents Monochromatic by Zoé Byland — Amsterdam, Netherlands — 7 NOV - 4 DEC, 2015
KochxBos Gallery Amsterdam, Eerste Anjeliersdwarsstraat 36
Zoé Bylands' out of focus, monochromatic paintings are pervaded by a nocturnal motive, which seems to emerge from the photography of the early 90's as well as from the film noir era. This feature brings with itself the mystery of distant memories, the nostalgia of a vintage aesthetic and, at the same time, all the iconography of our present pop philosophy, together with the synthesized symbolism of science fiction’s hi-tech imagery and the overbearing street art language. By tying all these elements together, Byland creates an alchemical mix of codes and numbers belonging to a future yet to be drawn.
