Moritz Baumann : Motionist Paintings

Motionism proposes there has been an aesthetic plateau since the great expansions of the 60’s and that various tactical experiments are now called for - one of these being the idea of asserting the primacy of painting and taking the ‘genres’ seriously again. Motionism holds that because enough time has passed since artists did not doubt the future would be found in a painted portrait, nude or landscape - and that there has been so much progress made on the science of visual cognition - that consciously deciding to paint from this position at this particular point in time must have a chance of producing serious work. The exhibition consists of fifteen paintings, three of each of the five genres undertaken – The Studio Landscape, The Plein Air Landscape, The Nude, The Portrait and the Still Life.
