Galerie Ora-Ora is pleased to present John Franzen’s Solo Exhibition Continuum this September.  The opening reception will be held from 6 pm to 8 pm on September 24 (Tuesday), and the show will be on view until October 12.

German artist John Franzen operates under a “Cosmology model”, exploring the universe around him and all that is constructed within it, including physics, philosophy and spirituality. Franzen’s series of paper drawings, “Each Line One Breath”, is an attempt to schematize and understand the relationship between space and time. In the parlance of the art world, terms such as “relativity”, “spacetime”, “gravitational waves” and “time dilation” are rarely used. However, these concepts are key to appreciating Franzen’s art.

Continuum will capture how Franzen is crystallizing the incipient of using art to explain science. Art is viewed as only representing abstract, intuitional and philosophical elements, whereas science purely has connotations with rationality and cold procedures. Franzen debunks these notions, as his drawings are concerned with both aspects. According to Karl Popper’s view of scientific discovery, new theories are discovered through creativity. There is only rationality in experimentation, but not in discovery. This logic of testing is applicable to Franzen as his works are experiments. His creative insights have some bearing on reality, reflecting how the truthness of the reality can be conveyed through art. By combining art and science, Franzen is able to push boundaries forward.
