Water for the Tribe is a new exhibition from Düsseldorf-based German artist Jan Pleitner who works in abstract painting. Water for the Tribe draws inspiration heavily from science fiction, featuring dynamic movement in paintings that are often completed in single marathon sessions. Highly colourful, the paintings bring to mind movement and light refracting violently through a variety of unusual spaces and shapes, and the usage of various scratches and other textures adds an aura of life to Jan’s work. Though he has previously exhibited as part of Deep One Perfect Morning in 2014, this is Pleitner’s first solo exhibition in Ireland.
The exhibition is set to open on the Friday 22nd January and will remain up through the 10th March in the Kerlin Gallery. There will be an Opening Reception for the gallery which will take place on the 22nd from 6 to 8pm.
