Chris Succo / April 23 - May 23, 2015 / Brussels

CHRIS SUCCOLanguage Of Elbow
April 23 - May 23, 2015 / Brussels
Opening on Thursday, April 23rd, 5 - 9 pm

Almine Rech Gallery is pleased to announce Chris Succo's Language Of Elbow, his first solo exhibition at the gallery. He will present new iterations of two series of works—the aforementioned ZigZag Paintings and a series of Untitled silkscreen paintings. Succo's silkscreen paintings, made from images cut from magazines, suggest faded rock posters, or a cascade of images of a truant youth. Flirting with the history of the nude in painting, they are collages in impoverished grayscale, deadpan renderings of adolescent excesses glorified by rock 'n' roll.
Both series, created in a studio with a constant soundtrack, and titled with lines drawn from Succo's own poetry, reverberate with energy and attitude. Together, they reflect on the act of painting in abstraction; in the context of their titles and Succo's own history as a musician, are not unlike liner notes—on painting.
Chris Succo (1979) lives and works in Düsseldorf, Germany.
