JAMMER OORTJIES - SOLO SHOW
DIEDERICKS/FABER FINE ART CAPE TOWN - SOUTH AFRICA
JUNE-JULY 2014

"Sorry dear.
Today is not your day.
Today is not your happy moment.
This is not your big celebration.
Jammer Oortjies"

Dani Buch is a painter, draftsman and engraver living and working in Barcelona, Spain. His anthropomorphic characters have been displayed on different art fairs and in galleries all over Europe. After completing a three months artist’s residency at Diedericks/Faber Fine Art in Cape Town, we gladly introduce you to the first solo show by this talented artist in South Africa.

Dani Buch’s fresh line draws us through his personal imagery, raw and rough as usual. A subtle frontier between reality and fantasy, depicted among quotidian, modern, and ironic situations of everyday life, creating a portrait of contemporary society, in which the ridicule of human behavior is harshly deployed. Even so, his new works do not urge us to deep reflection but rather serve as a blink provoking a smile at the sight of the frozen frames of the full spectacle of contemporary human complexity.

On this exhibition, the characters in his works are not merely humans acting like animals; this time the animals are the ones who become humans and interact in human situations; not at a standstill, but defying us in a “look at me and see what I am doing!” manner.

Welcome to Dani Buch’s world - welcome to the new reality.

“Perdona cariño,
Hoy no es tu día,
Hoy no es tu gran momento
Esta no es tu fiesta.
Jammer Oortjies.”

Dani Buch es un pintor, dibujante y grabador español que reside y trabaja en Barcelona. Sus caracteres antropomórficos se han expuesto en diferentes ferias de arte y galerías de Europa. Después de finalizar una residencia artística en Ciudad del Cabo por tres meses, es un honor para nosotros presentar su primera muestra individual en Sudáfrica.

La línea fresca de Dani Buch nos dibuja su imaginario personal tan cruda y severamente como acostumbra. La frontera sutil entre realidad y fantasía, representada a partir de situaciones cotidianas, modernas e irónicas del día a día, crea un retrato de la sociedad contemporánea, en la que se nos muestra sin reparos lo que de ridículo hay en el comportamiento humano. No obstante, sus nuevos trabajos no nos conminan a hacer una reflexión profunda sino que quieren servir como un guiño que nos provoque una sonrisa al contemplar estas fotos fijas del absurdo más absoluto de la complejidad humana actual.

En esta exposición, los personajes de sus obras no son solo humanos actuando como animales; esta vez, los animales son los que se convierten en humanos e interactúan en situaciones humanas, no congelados, sino desafiándonos: “¡Mírame y mira lo que hago!

Bienvenidos al mundo de Dani Buch, bienvenidos a la nueva realidad
