Subtraction Paradise: Jigger Cruz

Neutral Yesterday Series by Jigger Cruz

ARNDT proudly presents Jigger Cruz in his solo exhibition “Subtraction Paradise” from 3 June to 28 August 2015. Held together with the exhibition opening is his book launch and artist talk. In this exhibit, Cruz redefines the concept of painting as a surface of images and an image to destroy surfaces.

Jigger Cruz recreates classical painting by transforming it into an installation, exposing the surfaces and aspects of the stretcher and the frame of the artwork. He reminds the audience that the art of painting is a laborious activity and that contemporary artists carry the history of the process with them in their works.
