Oliver Osborne, a space that really matters

Oliver Osborne, born 1985, Edinburgh, UK, educated at Royal Academy and Chelsea College of art, based in London, soon on show at Frutta in Rome (from October 10th).


Notes on a gallery of works currently on show at Vilma Gold: open windows to illustrated scenes (taken from a German language textbook?); painting is the colored background/base/frame; realistic oil paintings of rubber plants pop up on the wall like suspension points at the end of a sentence. It seems that a “syntethic” (not abstracted!) world goes by beyond and outside the real space.
