Press Release - Miami 2020

 

Breaking art news from Miami !

 

Yves Ullens launches his new artworks series LikeAPainting at “Art 4 All” in Miami.

Free and open to public

December 1-6, 2020

Wynwood, Design District, Brickell, Downtown Miami

 

Yves Ullens is pleased to launch his new original series LikeAPainting at the occasion of the event “Art 4 All” in Miami during the first week of December. A Worldwide Premiere !

 

“Art 4 All” is a concept created this year by the Cube Art Fair in the context of the lockdown. A creative campaign encouraging artists and the public to remain positive in the uncertain time and a challenging year. After a successful edition in Brussels in October 2020, the Cube Art Fair is taking over the streets of Miami where the public and art collectors will discover the artworks of international artists. Yves Ullens’ artworks are featured on 50 billboards (2 x 1,35 m) all over the city of Miami and on 2 monumental highway billboards (4,2 x 14,6 m).

 

The Belgian artist, Yves Ullens, has always had a passion for painting.  But it is with his own photography that he began exploring light, color and composition.  Photography allows him to capture images, with different abstract interpretations, of the subjects he photographs.   In 2019, Yves Ullens began painting in acrylic on paper and canvas. First and foremost a photographer, Ullens then decided to photograph his painted works - generating an innovative breakthrough in abstraction - in terms of composition, strength, and balance of colors. The paintings are not intended to be exhibited, rather they serve as subject matter for his future abstract photographs.  His paintings in this way, become ‘matrixes’ (i.e. templates) designed to give birth to photographic works, in a collection called LikeAPainting.  One matrix is used to make a body of 2 to 10 photographic works.

Printing with archival pigmented ink on paper or canvas, a technique that comes very close to painting, the artist achieves an intentional visual confusion.  Like a painting on canvas, his largest format artworks (53.1 x 78.7 in / 135 x 200 cm) are created in a unique edition of one *.
