Almine Rech Editions is pleased to announce its collaboration with Brian Calvin. This limited edition print depicts the painting 'Lineup', exhibited during the artist's latest show 'Sound', held at Almine Rech Shanghai from January 10 to February 29, 2020.
'[...] The artist de-humanise characters as he depicts them, and de-libidinalise as he writes libidos. He first affirms the distances between himself and surrounding people, issues and matters, and works not through sensations, but scales. Specifically, in the context of the contemporary reality, an alienation brought by a certain bluntness activates his theme. ‘Lineup’ with its row of profiles reminds one of Egyptian murals, and even the design of the fourth generation Chinese notes. The composition is stable, clear, orderly, and is secretly faithful to collectivity. After all, Brian Calvin works on the most obvious things; and because these are the elephant in the room, people usually cannot be bothered. One day the visible invisible will become a muddy, murky conundrum that asks for solutions.
