FUTURES presents Tim Bučković’s latest exhibition as, via, sets of gathering.
The exhibition will consist of mesmeric arresting oil on linen paintings populated with dissolving figures engaged in bizarre rituals within a landscape that oscillates between flatness and depth. Within these works time, and painting’s history, folds into the pictorial plane itself. Tim’s work pushes historical painting values through a sieve and reconstitutes those disparate parts in a pixel-like language that is distinctly the artist’s own. Informed by modernist and avant-garde practices and the semiotic qualities of Yugoslavian and Eastern European monuments, graphics and animation, his dynamic compositions consist of unspecified rituals, fractured space, and architectonic planes. These works are laced with tension in a time-space which is simultaneously neo-utopian, ominous, sci-fi and mystical – qualities found in alternative histories.
