Dino Zrnec

ensure for size

12.09.-16.11.2014


 

Dino Zrnec (b. 1983 in Zagreb, lives in Vienna and Zagreb) devotes his paintings to the testing of materials. The artist draws attention to practical, usually hidden procedures inherent to painting by making conscious technical “mistakes”: he lets the reverse side of the canvas show through and turns it into the motif, overstreches canvases, does without

gesso or uses it “improperly,” drips oil paint onto canvases, dissolves the colors with turpentine overnight or adds cracks, folds or buckling to the surface. Zrnec does not leave the result to chance, but to the process of

experimentation. The deconstruction of painting allows no narration and turns

the paintings into minimalist, experimental objects. Nevertheless, and even

without knowing about Zrnec’s process-oriented approach, the paintings stands

as works in their own right.  


In the last project space exhibition with the ambiguous title ensure for size, painter Dino Zrnec fights the space of Zobernig and Kläring as no other project has done before, while simultaneously he tries to find the best solution to integrate his work into the sculpture.
