Ervin Potočnik Messengers
4. 3. 2020–30. 4. 2020

The exhibition, filled with symbolism, presents two views of the artist's tale of humans. The emphasis is on the strongly contrasting stylised figures, which are merged and float in a white void. These are the messengers in an unknown ritual. The paintings of a larger format (200 x 110 cm) are dominated by red-coloured figures, while the second part of the exhibition presents preparatory paintings or concepts for sculptures, with an emphasis on black figures.
