PURUS / Graduation Show 2012

11 artists, 9 nationalities, 7 languages , come together in the exhibition titled PURUS, the Latin root of the word pure(puro/pur), an untainted representation of perfection, naturalness, and concentration.

It all started with 333 yellow trees, 250 portraits, 99 towers of Babel, and many other experiments aimed to lead each student to the essence of his/her artistic language.

The results of this research, guided by Ruudt Peters are presented in PURUS,

Not all is pure and white, we actually did not want to refer to verginity and pure whiteness –

what we were thinking about was the fully colored and energy cramped double word purpur (in German) purpure in French – the color of the Gods, The Pope and the Cardinals, the only missing color in the spectrum of the rainbow. The color of power, of wealth of absolute transition……

Valentina Caprini

But at the end the word Purus/Pure leads to white in one way or the other, to white as the absence of color or the  presence of all colors together.
Each of us has his  individual vision of the colored world that cannot be shared…..

Giulia Savino

It has been hard to work for the whole year on this vision, to reach the pure essence of the individual artistic language.
For some it seemed easier but in reality it was not,
each of us has to struggle to get there;
it is not an easy task

Dinah Lee

All of them did really good work at the end, for some it was harder- but it will maybe reach further,
this is the value of getting on in slow motion

Catalina Gibert Nadal

to learn to speak your own artistic language is a challenging task, someone wanted to quit half way, but it was not allowed and the results  show that it was worth while.
