The current exhibition,”Colors of Descents” at Leipzig’s G2 Kunsthalle takes you on a time-warp to the gaming iconography of the early 1990s.
Presenting three positions in painting that all take influence from the gaming visual identity of 1990s, “Colors of Descents” showcases for the first time work by Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig graduates Tobias Hild, Julius Hofmann and Robert Seidel.
Drawing from an all-too-familiar repertoire of video-game scenarios, all three artists dive into the realm of reminiscence embedded in many of our minds when looking at gaming graphics from this era, where for many, this time in technology represented a new “world”, a place where you could get completely lost in a strange and new realm. In addition to investigating memories and relationships between gamer and game, “Colors of Descents” also looks at the paradigm shift in speed, quality and interaction to today’s gaming market.
“Colors of Descents” features entirely brand-new work from all three artists, with some works loaned from private collections.
