LAST CHANCE Bernhard Buhmann: The Signal and The Noise
Nate Silver’s book of the same name explains the use of probability and prediction to show how we can all develop detect the true signals amid a noise of data to achieve better foresight in an uncertain world. Buhmann’s exhibition borrows the principles to continue his in-depth study of the individual within the Information Age. From the blurb: “In a world perpetually flooded by technology, Buhmann’s new works scrutinise its affective ability to limit our own perceptions or beliefs … Bernhard Buhmann contemplates the consequences from both a social and individual level in the event of when shared information is misconstrued”. The paintings in this show mimic the laser-cut, vector graphics of the online era, planes of smooth, sweeping gradients building into multi-layered compositions; “in their regenerative nature, his abstractions are variations of archetypal appearances in an ever-evolving, online world”.
