Trenčín native Pasta Oner’s (1979) first major exhibition in Slovakia showcases a compelling, cohesive collection of more almost sixty paintings and sculptural objects created over the last two years.
Originally rooted in the Prague graffiti scene, the focus of Pasta Oner’s work has since shifted to wall-mounted paintings and sculptural objects characterized by a wide variety of influences ranging from comic books to advertising, old art and the everyday life.
The overarching theme of the present exhibition, which makes reference to the “brotherhood of eternal love”, is the transition between earthly and heavenly love as manifested in various intersections between the two. On the ground floor of the Danubiana, three sculptural objects partly based on the statue of David introduce Pasta Oner’s idea of a hero that is supposed to cleanse the world of all sin. The paintings on the first floor represent various treatments of the timeless subject of love and treachery.
