Takeover #216 Remy Neumann
#216 (24/10 - 28/10, 2022) written by Esther van Zoelen
In his work, Remy Neumann seeks to find his own subconsciousness. This is hard to unravel, but appears in for example his dreams, through which he learns to navigate. Underneath the different layers he aims to reach the core, from which images are translated into his paintings. By working on himself and using this personal development, his artworks are often turned inwards. Besides using ‘footage’ from his dreams Remy is also interested in marginalia in medieval manuscripts, The Divine Comedy by Dante, and other spiritual sublimeness and atrocities. The old ways of living, in close relationship to spirituality and with awe for gods and devils, is something he finds inspiring because of its rich visual language. Not as symbols, but as images that can take in a whole new meaning.
