Hazy state of affairs
Wunderkammern, Via Ausonio 1A, Milan
The Miaz Brothers (Milan, 1965 and 1968) live and work in Valencia, Spain. Winners of the prestigious 5th Arte Laguna Awards Painting section in 2011, they boast exhibitions in important galleries and international art fairs. The artists are nowadays well-known for their innovative and original approach in portrait painting: through a skilful use of acrylics on canvas they produce enigmatic and evocative artworks, in which the representation appears completely blurry and out-of-focus. Stimulating mnemonic and personal associations in the viewer’s mind, their work aims to engage our visual and cognitive perception.
With the solo show Hazy state of affairs at Wunderkammern Milan, their artworks become a metaphor of the contemporary society's status, in which the truth of the events is dull and altered and it remains unintelligible. The Miaz Brothers' aesthetics carries out a short circuit between reality and imagination, certainty and doubt. The artworks are simultaneously abstract and figurative and the observer is forced to interpret in a subjective way the image of a blurry truth.
"All our artworks are inspired by music, because music has been a main source of inspiration since the beginning and it contributed to the development of the concept of our works. In particular electronic music, which is pure abstraction, it's a journey which is both internal and external. The extraordinary thing about electronic music is that it allows people which have not followed a classic training and education in music to create and make music themselves."
