This exhibition, by a select group of artists from NGO Art Studio, is based on the idea of releasing art from the boundaries of conceptualism through the attitude that "simplicity is the highest level of sophistication.”
With our motto that "art is the strongest form of individualism,” the aim of the artists belonging to NGO Art Studio must be to preserve the personal perspective.Each work of art has its own unique signature ~ made by one author with artistic skill ~ and any coincidence or similarity with well known artistic styles or movements is a subconscious reflection of the cultural and social influences of society.The personal perspective, inspired by everyday visual impressions of a certain existence, creates art as a product of many coincidences and events.
The exhibition, Ars versus Argumentum, reveals a pristine and immediate response to that subconscious reality, expressed spontaneously through visual impressions before the intellectual process of creation.According to this movement, art works, which are contemplating figuration as an expression of "realism” of some sort, are independent from this reality.The truth can only be processed through the simplicity of quick drawing and sketching with the goal of preserving the freedom of the "first impression”.
This group of artists from NGO Art Studio has come together through their way of expression, choosing a variety of different manners and techniques leading towards one common message.Their artwork is a result of captured moods in different moments.Those different moods in those particular moments mirror our reality and our existence.
"The path which leads to endless journey”
With this exhibition, the members of NGO Art Studio initiate their collaboration with Bakehouse Art Complex inMiami,Florida, and partnership with Cultural Information Center Skopje, Faculty of Fine ArtsandPrimaCenterinBerlin, as part of this long-term worldwide project.
