May 4, 2018 João Louro


Christopher Grimes Gallery, Santa Monica, USA.

The exhibition Ethereal shows works by João Louro, Oliver Mosset, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, Gianfranco Foschino and Dane Mitchell.


In classical science, aether was thought to be the fifth element, filling the region of the universe above the terrestrial sphere, connecting and permeating all things and acting as a medium of the propagation of light. Though these theories were eventually disproved by modern science, the word ethereal still invokes a sense of otherworldliness, fragility and spirituality. This exhibition brings together gallery artists from different backgrounds whose work engages with the immaterial, through forms such as light, color, vapor and air.
