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.
