Marek Nenutil-Openmindz360

(cze)

Openmindz360° is not only an art pseudonym – Marek Nenutil aka Openmindz360°. The „Z“ on the end is giving the vague 2 words some kind of restlessness, the main accent is on the epithet 360°, which is giving the final touch to the nickname. Openmindz360° is becoming a complete metaphor of the whole artistic work of Marek Nenutil – autonomous, independent visual artist with strong streetart background. With his proclaimed „openness“, he is showing subconscious or hidden matters of collective conscious and visions of our future. Openmindz360° openness is visible in whole range of his work – in the attitude to the worlld, in the themes (found out by the attitude) and in using various mediums and means.

The new series of paintings is defined by clearer expression of the process, in the meaning of authors expression and in more precise articulation of the theme. In the beginning of Openmindz work is inspiration with our postcatastrophic world and life, which surrounds us and whose symbols we carry in our subconsciousness. He is fascinated by old stuff, which he finds in abandoned industrial areas and woods around Ostrava, respectively with distant places photographed for his needs.. „Those things are beautiful for me, the only thing is, you have to start to love them, just not to be scared.“, he explains. This forgotten, lost things are symbols of „hidden“, what is shown in his objects and paintings. He is showing us a bizarre world, which surrounds us in the reality. The works itself is not hiding the very dramas of simulacrums of today's mainstream culture and pathological beautified of empty or ugly. The permeation to the hidden visual plane is happening through a strong, with content and symbolics filled visual narration. Each separate meaning is reduced with strong expressive abbreviation. The space of the painting is characteristically doubled – in the front is situated the story and in the background are usually flat interiors of attics, cellars and other „scary houses“. Frontal dominant radical expressive figuration in both painting and the „objects-vitrines“ is showing sediments of postmodern dramas, which is the author uncovering with clear and critical attitude. Repeating symbols of crosses, shopping trolleys, barrels and gas bombs are pervaded through the whole series of paintings. Objects are even more apocalyptic visions even more and they are destroying all illusions about contemporary artistic experience. These wooden vitrines, made specially for the presentation of Mr.Nenutils exposition at The Chemistry Gallery on Art Prague 2013 are showing some kind of horror movie at the contemporary art market. Art Basel, or Documenta, as main fairs are in Openmindz vitrines similar more to some kind of postcatastrophic stand, where just a couple of survivors are defending totally deformed torzo of previously shiny world. It looks like, that ArtPocalypse, as authors private resistance, is questioning the meaning of ubiquitous fake beauty, shiny world of art and stereotypes as general.

Presented entity is balanced and bright, but pessimistic authors vision and a strong visual attitude, that is denying surf on the wave of demanded and decorative.
