KÖNIG GALERIE is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition of Slovenian-born, Berlin-based artist, Evgen Čopi Gorišek, in the Chapel space at St. Agnes in Berlin. Gorišek creates large-format paintings that he crafts with a mixture of traditional techniques and spray-painted characters taken from popular images. For MATCH POINT, Gorišek has made five paintings of single figures, including for the first time, a large, two-part panel depicting two personages. As the title of the show suggests, these are all portraits of tennis players, all of which are drawn from published images, though none a one-to-one recreation. Rather, Gorišek uses the images as blueprints for his designs, changing lighting conditions and bodily definition with each painting.
