Harry Markusse

On Livingstone Gallery’s ground floor are at the moment two very different shows.

One is with works by Harry Markusse (1990) recently made on the occasion of his stay at Livingstone’s residence in Berlin.

It must have been a very special experience to be in Berlin during the Covid-19 lockdown.

It inspired him to make works with wavy patterns.

He usually works improvising on the canvas, which results in two kinds of works, more or less structural works with two colours, and compositions with specific point and counterpoint in its volumes.

As afterthoughts there are parts of discarded but reworked works collected as a kind of in-depth collages in plastic boxes.

Altogether this looks like an interesting, almost frivolous, development in Markusse’s work, which was usually lively anyway, but also with straight lines, sharp edges and sharp corners.

Daniele Galliano

In the other exhibition space Daniele Galliano (1961) shows amongst others this marvellous work called Zombie (Morti viventi); a work made before the Corona crisis, but one would almost think it is foretelling something of its atmosphere.

Daniele Galliano

There are recent and older works by Galliano on show.

There is a strong sense of both remembrance and of a kind of parallel world in his works.

Daniele Galliano

This parallel world shows a kind of ghost-like alternative for what can be perceived as reality.

Daniele Galliano

Sometimes quite subtle, sometimes quite less so.

It is as if he works with a camera which obstinately but intriguingly  changes the picture, showing the spirits of things and people.
