TRANSFERRED

‘Transferred’ is Killian’s second solo exhibition at NL=US Gallery.
In this exhibition Killian combines older and new paintings into an exciting transcendent entity.

A common thread in the exhibition is the plurality of the source materials that Killian uses such as the Internet, magazines, and leaflets, and that all these images are then transferred to the medium of painting. In this process the meaning of the picture is purposefully altered and transformed by the artist.

Killian positions himself in a long tradition of artists who have appropriated everyday images by painting them such as Picabia, Warhol, Richter, van Golden, and many others. Striking is the preference for banality that speaks from the sometimes very different subjects. Through painting Killian gives a special focus and stillness to images that normally lead an inconspicuous life in the anonymity of the mass media.
