This work comes from Mitchell Cheesman’s first solo show ‘Solitude in Berlin’ with Curatorial+Co. This collection explores his relationship with travel, solitude and poetry. As he anticipates the near future, filled with opportunity and challenge, moments of contemplation give way to works of art. A number of works in this collection are accompanied by poetry, acting as extensions of the visual storytelling.
Says Mitchell: “How a certain place can make you feel as if you had slumbered many past-life nights away behind the peachy coats of tinned paint to the exterior buildings of utter quaint & I still whistle when I walk.
“Painting a subject based on the feeling of your future reminiscent self, as if you had already visited smelt a smell, or tasted a sound, a pure guess or instinct as such, a desire towards Berlin. The words be written on this empty page are only a footstep & a scented memory of the painting itself, away.
“These paintings are a visceral reaction to the knowings of my upcoming solitary in a place that I have found of great interest, the paint & the poems can link or they can take obscure turns down cobblestone paths in directions ever so exciting to oneself. Either way, I’ve always found the two to compliment each other in a significance that is treasured in a humble lonesomeness.”
