Alan Rotz - Mirror
“Mirror” is the first solo exhibition of works by Scottish painter Alan Rotz.
The show consists of large-format canvases and a special edition artist’s book featuring a previously unpublished series of eight female erotic photographs taken by the artist alongside the documentation of the corresponding eight paintings.
Installed in a confined space the canvases divide the interior into two equal intimate narrows, where it is impossible to move away from the paintings further than the touching distance. All of the included works were made to be shown their rectos or versos or both sides to the viewer.
For the occasion of the “Mirror” exhibition artist has chosen specifically to present only the backsides of the paintings, censoring the front images and making them accessible to the public only via printed and digital reproductions.
