Landscaped Illusions curated by Mariavelia Savino, Curator of Contemporary Art Projects USA will be on display from December 4-9th, 2018 at Scope-Miami International Contemporary Art Fair, Booth G13 as part of Art Basel Miami Week. David Krovblit will be part of this exhibition which encompasses a diversity of artistic media and densities. From paint/collage on steel and cement canvas to urban street landscapes or three-dimensional views of skies, waters or topographical lands, from sculptures in polished steel or cement to dreamlike Plexiglas or glass mounted photographic images fulfilled by mystery and fantasy. Our goal is to present the expansion of the human mind through Art, as an unlimited source of imagery, depictions, thoughts and feelings, endless and infinite, as it is the Universe in which we live, either the real one, or the one fulfilled by the magical abstract visions that Artists create while depicting it. A section of the exhibition will relate its visitors with visions of graffiti and branding, including a subtle night view of Manhattan, New York, and a motivating tribute to Basquiat as one of the masters that mastered this genre so popular in NYC. The other section is about landscape and nature. The unique artistic pieces will travel from the deep sea to the infinite space, as well as by the wonder of the minimal transcending as major Art theme, and also by depictions of a fantastic world, where animal and human are able to merge, beyond pain or destruction.
Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, David Krovblit studied Photography at Ryerson University. He has cleverly merged his career as a professional advertising photographer, shooting national and international brand campaigns, with creating artistically celebrated artworks as a fine art photographer. His Art is influenced by the everyday world, which he interprets depicting an artistic response based on common issues and images that as an Artist he is able to transform in intriguing and provoking depictions. His powerful images are engaging to the viewers, as well as creating very personal and relevant thoughts and feelings. To contemplate his collage photography is a visual and intellectual experience The artist has a keen eye for detail and a great skill with the medium. He plays with symbolic images that in his artwork might acquire a meaning entirely the opposite, from the delicate or priceless to the volatile and surprising. His beautiful creations play with the ironic and the unexpected, such as how a symbol of life might become something destructive or vice versa. David Krovblit’s images are visually eye-catching and provocative, while they highlight the contrast of carrying the weight of human history joining with our contemporary society, merging the contents of their backstory and present creative depictions. At the same time as his concepts can be of a serious nature, Krovblit’s collage combinations create a lightheartedness that makes each piece engaging and approachable, as they talk about subjects from different cultures with a unique variety of assembled images and time frames.
For the exhibition presented by Contemporary Art Projects USA Boot at Scope Art Fair 2018, the curatorial selection defined two hand-cut collages photographs Deep Dive and Exile of 48″ x 48″ each, to be shown both at the same time one next to the other. In the selected artwork by David Krovblit to be presented at Scope, we can appreciate how his colorful images are conceptually rising above contemporary issues while exploring social and ecological themes with great humor and intense messages. Surrounded by beautiful earthly flowers and plants the diver depicted in Deep Dive is making a call to love Nature and don’t dump garbage. In Exile we can see a romantic lady astronaut with an attractive doted space-suit warning us about endless issues that we can imagine just looking at this intense Artwork, such as: the possible need for humanity to have to migrate to other planets, the Space race to learn about other worlds, the contamination that men are producing on Earth and in Space, the need to protect the endangered animal species, a call to look out for peace in every sense, and finally a reflection about what we eat or consume, from where it comes and what effect it will provoke in our lives. The curatorial decision to exhibit both images by David Krovblit one next to the other will make their viewers to experience an immeasurable travel from the deepness of the seas to the infinity of the heavenly space. Looking to one Artwork visitors will feel like staring out from a submarine round window that in the next Artwork transforms in a spaceship window. The overall is making us think that no matter the shape or the size of the window from which we look, to properly understand and assume life, it all will really depend by where we are and what we see, or moreover, we want to accomplish, to be or believe about.
The Artworks by David Krovblit have been featured throughout Canada and the United States in juried group showcases, in solo exhibitions and are as well part of private Art Collections in Europe, Asia, Canada and the United States of America.
