Galerie DUMONTEIL Shanghai is pleased to present “Synthesis”, Ugo Schildge’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, featuring 24 artworks that showcase Schildge’s most recent development on his mixed-media pictorial creations. Combined with a reflection on social reality, the artist initiated a multi-chapter cycle started with “Pollen” in Shanghai in 2018, “Nectar” in NYC in 2019, “Essence” in Paris in 2020, and now the loop closes and anticipates the “Synthesis” of his artistic research around the balance of nature.
Through this exhibition, Ugo Schildge gives us a "Synthesis" of the multi-faceted nature. He assumes a non-demanding ecological posture and confronts us with the deterioration of our ecosystem. Perpetuating the circle of nature in concrete, the artist wishes to give us a testimony, a glimpse of hope, a reminder that once mother nature stops living and breathing, so do we. The continuation of human civilization is predicated on facing the changes in climate and environment.
