Moneyless opens his first Solo exhibition of the year at Berlin BC Gallery. The exhibition “Fragmentations” represents a new body of work from Moneyless that embraces a new direction for the artist. Talking with the artist earlier this year he informed of us a need to break from his current body of work and a need to build something new. It is exciting to see the development of this deconstruction in this new body of work. As in past years of the artists life where he would detach from letterbased work and create a new body of work based purely on form which lead to his signature circular works, he now is faced with deconstructing once again and this time its the circle. Repetition is still at the core of the exercise of the mark, yet broken and allusions to fragments of a circle replace continuous motion. This broken motion creates a more abstract image allowing color and texture to compete with the broken forms. Painted fragments allude to completeness yet maintain a void that completely destroys any resemblance of his older work, you need to look deeper into the motion and movement that is hidden to feel the sense of movement. An impressive task for an artist to take a risk by destroying something built over the years in an attempt to illuminate something new and fresh. Bravo Moneyless, make sure you take in the show in person if you are in Berlin.

About the Show
The artwork of “Fragmentations” is the result of an artistic journey that led to the deconstruction and transformation of the most important aspect of Moneyless’ work, which is the circle, into a dimension of pure movement by depriving it of its perfect form and replacing it with a more human and fleeting tension.The fragments have become the foundation of a new piece of art that animates and invites the spectator’s eye to be part of the creative process. The movement and the strain of the motion thrust were previously represented by a string of static circumferences. Now, the lines suggest a finiteness that the eye can subconsciously recreate, giving the painting a sense of ephemeral completeness.Movement is thus being released beyond the painting and into the surrounding space.
