Happy New Year to everybody!
Thank you very much for your support of ART+CULTURE, which started last year and continues to grow in popularity, see 1-day hits from yesterday.

In this regard, we’re all relaxed, because this concept is different from Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.
ART+CULTURE is a free, contemporary-art-related website, without national borders, fear or moral restrictions.
Unfortunately, Instagram and Facebook practice censorship, which means that they hinder, obstruct artists, who want to show/introduce their art works with erotic concepts.

If you want to use one of the above bookmarks, I can offer you the new account at Instagram, which probably starts in the near future.

So, from time to time, drop by and check this website for topics of your personal interest. Thank you.

Captivating Exhibition at Gallery Koyanagi: Michaël Borremans and Mark Manders

https://art-culture.world/articles/michael-borremans-mark-manders-gallery-koyanagi/

“The running, fascinating show at Gallery Koyanagi embraces the grandeur of metaphorical, intimate landscape: Michaël Borremans (Belgium) and Mark Manders (The Netherlands).
By juxtaposing the fragmented human form, both artists’s enigmatic narratives let the viewer explore the architecture of story telling, focusing on structure, rather than on specific contents.
Gallery Koyanagi’s splendid curatorial practice prompts us visitors to contemplate and marvel at figurative mysticism, fragile objects, – a notion of self-searching à la Dante’s Divine Comedy, metaphorically speaking. Highly atmospheric, conceptual embodiment, amalgamation through morbid coloring, makes this exhibition a welcome escape from the buzz down the street in the heart of Tokyo.
Strongly recommending!”

I would like to take this opportunity to show you more fascinating works by these two sensitive artists, which are beautifully executed, mysteriously intimate and cleverly avoiding the personal. Let’s contemplate.
