Over the Influence, Los Angeles is pleased to present The Sound of my Soul, a solo exhibition of jubilant paintings and sculptures by German artist Super Future Kid.
This is the artists first presentation in LA and her second with the gallery.
The title of the exhibition was drawn from a song lyric and plays on notions of perception ~ sound is only heard when the vibrations meet the ear; For the artist, colors, shapes, and images in her work reverberate much like sound, the moment when they reach the eye is the moment when it all comes together. The Sound of my Soul encapsulates the literal and scientific with the intangible, as a soul cannot literally be measured, though the feelings the works emote equally reverberate throughout Super Future Kid’s pastel universe.
B. 1981, East Berlin, DDR. Lives and works in London, UK.
Super Future Kid was born in East Germany is 1981 where she spent the first 8 years of her life completely unaware of the western world. The cultural shock that followed the fall of the Berlin wall left a great impression on her and played an important role in her love for bold colors, toys and everything joyful and playful. Employing bold shapes and colors her work explores a wide range of subjects that all circulate around certain ideas of childhood and youth and provides a platform which is emotionally engaging and gives the observer an opportunity to discover an alternate dreamlike reality of themselves.
