'(U.F.O.) Unreadable For Others' by Botond Keresztesi at Future Gallery, Berlin

Future Gallery is proud to present U.F.O. (Unreadable For Others) an exhibition of new paintings by Botond Keresztesi. This is the second solo exhibition by the artist at the gallery.

The title Unreadable For Others insinuates a sort of codex that can only be interpreted by the author. The imaginative collaging of various cultural elements leads one to puzzle, how did the artist arrive at such an absurdist narrative within the paintings. However, the highly recognizable imagery hints at a sort system of communication which transports you a bizarre virtual nexus. 

Keresztesi’s visual language is made up of stark art historical references, imagery from pop and subcultures alike. In these new paintings, one see visual clues of Caravaggio, Harry Potter, Hieronymous Bosch, 3D rendered organs, Frank Lloyd Wright, Smartphones, Joseph Beuys, X-files and Modigliani amongst others. These images are abstracted and democratized removed from cultural hierarchy, and then mashed together into new compositions. The resulting canvases can be deciphered as unique conflations of different time periods.
