What the gallery tells: “Melzl’s pictures had their genesis in critical circumstances in the history of art. By the mid-1990s, the common sense of picture as a genuine art sort was definitely outmoded. People had become skeptical of the medium that had been held the dominant style for ages and it needed some strength to begin earnestly applying one’s consciousness to do it repeatedly. Melzl relates to that crop of artists—at the time, among 30 and 40—who assisted art to once again grow the name of the contemporary discussion on art, but now with a renewed self-appraisal.
To Melzl, fantasies are attractive areas of cover, but more terrible things. Because meanwhile fantasies are mixed with real practice, they block an unobstructed glimpse of truth. On the contrary, a disappointing glimpse of the world can no longer deceive, it supports and preserves. The illustrated universe of Stephan Melzl is thus not just connected with conflicting themes. Preferably, its interest is increasing and concentrating the spectator ’s attention, which is focused on the plots set by the artist. This gaze provides for each sort of honest community. Declining aesthetic and ethical codices, it is freeing and a comic aid.”
Why it’s deserving a peek: Stephan Melzl might be acting on a little scale, although he binds a lot inside every picture. In his late program at Basel-based showroom Nicolas Krupp, canvases are fixed at head level, all including a surreal life stuffed including personas balancing the trite and the mysterious. The exhibition ’s name, “Helden, Grundanstrich” really translated to “Heroes First Coat”, means that the personalities including the pictures are just freely painted as a character; all are unfinished drafts, the example sheet on which the product will make.
A lot of the personalities really keep paintbrushes, as if both are drawing the stories of each other till the tale is finished. In the nominal part, a crowd of characters stands at consideration the like militants covering matching soldier helmets as Batman’s logo burns after them in the midnight sky. On the side of them, a lady carrying a tin of paint with the Superman logo on it stands mid-stroke, needing a rest from her work. It’s as if the artist waked in the midst of a nightmare and let you walk inside his brain as the executed scene on the art.
