Alfred Lichter "Letters to Godot"
09.09.10 - 10.10.10

Leaving the Outcome to Chance.

The exhibition presents a selection of Alfred Lichter's (93) most recent paintings, a series he calls Letters to Godot. 'Godot' is his synonym for God, and his use of the term 'letters' indicates that Lichter intends to approach the Divine. The paintings come into existence through a process Lichter calls 'pourings', allowing the colours to distribute themselves over the canvas without control or interference. After subsequent washes, the colours cover the entire surface, sometimes transparent, sometimes opaque, depending on their consistency. Lichter leaves the outcome to chance, granting it, as the one entity truly independent of human influence, the decisive creative momentum. He permits himself only minor touch-ups where contrasts seem too harsh, and smoother transitions appear more suitable. The paintings resist any representationalist association. They are a hommage to the autonomy of colour. Their unbounded spectrum ranges from the black of night, the azure blue of Mediterranean horizons, to the glowing red of volcanic eruptions. In the context of his "letters", Lichter talks about "pure art", free of its "representationalist chains", coming to rest in the "spiritual". The past decade of Lichter's work has been dedicated to an ardent pursuit: "To keep open the door to the spiritual life".

CCA-Andratx is pleased to present an exhibition of collaborative paintings by New York artists Jennifer Coates, Holly Coulis, Ridley Howard and David Humphrey. Each painting was made with a different sequence of artists using the same division of labor, in which one artist would paint the location and two others would provide the protagonists.
