Get ready for “Symphony of Systematic Minimalism”, Remi Rough's first solo exhibition in Italy. The british artist explores the relationship between visual art and music. As music’s abstract language, in Remi’s paintings the visual elements become a chromatic system of pure forms. In his works colours, lines and shapes are modulated as visual “chords” in a musical composition, resulting in a dynamic and precise structure, where nothing is arbitrary and everything is in the right place.
Remi Rough (London, 1971) is one of the greatest exponents of the abstract current of urban art. Coming from the UK art scene of the 80s, he has pursued his research both in the gallery space and through public interventions. The artist combines the purism of avant-garde movements such as Suprematism, with a totally modern expressionistic energy to create powerful abstract compositions. Remi Rough has exhibited in important international institutions and events such as the Biennale of Street Art in Moscow, the Museé Mohammed VI in Rabat, the MB6 Marrakech Biennale, the Urban Art Biennale at the Völklinger Museum, the Museum of Fine Art of Santander and the Maison De L’Architecture in Strasbourg.

The artist combines the purism of avant-garde movements such as Suprematism, with a totally modern expressionistic energy to create powerful abstract compositions. His synthetic yet dynamic lines and neat geometric colour forms, whether on walls or on canvas, acquire an almost sculptural dimension.

Symphony of Systematic Minimalism, Remi Rough’s first solo exhibition in Italy, explores the relationship between visual art and music. With an experience in music production of over 20 years, Remi’s artistic and musical expressions have always been intrinsically linked. As music’s abstract language, the visual elements in Remi’s paintings become a chromatic system of pure forms. His works colours, lines and shapes are modulated as visual “chords” in musical composition, resulting in a dynamic and precise structure where nothing is arbitrary and everything is in it's right place. Each painting, along with the musical composition created especially for it, acquires a temporal dimension, evolving in time and becomes an experience.
For his show at Wunderkammern, Remi Rough will present large scale works on canvas together with music written and produced by the artist. He will also present artworks on paper along with a site-specific installation in the gallery. On the occasion of the opening, the book #RoughSketches Volume 01 will be presented, together with a limited special edition created by Sandra Varisco.
Remi has produced a 9 track album as an exclusive release with us that directly correlates to the paintings within the show. This is the first time Remi has explored the natural connection of his artwork and his music making.
The 9 songs reference his artistic and musical influences from as far a field as John Carpenter and Aphex Twin to Futura and Marcel Duchamp.

Nice, i like the body of work's diversity. Either the form or colours are minimalist but elaborated, interesting evolution. Personal favorite is the black square canvas. A shame that i already got a piece from Remi's previous show, i would be all over that one.

Daniel Silk: In my opinion, Imbue, Ryca and Mobstr would be artists producing the freshest art in the past couple of years. Who would be your top 3?

paulagibbs: From someone who used to build websites, this site is not easy to navigate, and all those flashing ads at the top are annoying and rather low-end looking. I am guessing the only people who are going to visit are artists trying to sell their art.

pgm: hey guys, quick question: I have a For Sale thread posted on June 26. Since then I updated the post with new and sold pieces and commented to bump it. But it is now stuck on page 11 of the Art for Sale thread (and noone sees it). Is "bumping turned off" somehow?
