Opening Reception: From Darkness Comes Color

The CAMP Gallery is pleased to present our latest exhibition From Darkness Comes Color, a solo exhibition featuring new and old works by German-based artist Dominik Schmitt. The exhibition will be open to the public in our Miami gallery beginning March 8 and will run through March 29. The gallery will be hosting an opening reception on Friday, March 8, 2024 from 6–8 PM.

This exhibition explores the adaptability of the human mind through the transformative power of color, while also serving as a display of Dominik Schmitt's progression of medium and style. From the depths of the darkness of his older, shadowy works, vibrant hues emerge, breathing life into his newer works, acting as a reminder of the future we can perceive, and can therefore change. Curated by Gabe Torres.

From Darkness Comes Color is available for viewing in our North Miami gallery at 791-793 NE 125th St. from March 8–March 29 2024.

The CAMP Gallery is open Tuesday–Saturday, 12 to 5 PM.

The Contemporary Art Modern Project (The CAMP Gallery)

The Contemporary Art Modern Project Gallery specializes in art advisory and contemporary art with a focus on emerging and mid-career artists working in: installation, painting, photography, sculpture, textiles, and video art with a specific direction of both self and worldly reflection. Looking at art, as a whole, through a reactionary and interdisciplinary approach, the gallery covers the ever-populating notion of society and life in general through art and curation, offering a creative space both in the gallery and out—where creativity and reality co-exist.

Artist ( Description ): 

Born in 1983, Dominik Schmitt is a painter born to Neustadt, Germany. Every young artist today faces great challenges in view of the past centuries of art and art  history and the overwhelming diversity and possibilities found on the art market. How can I find my own way in this “jungle,” assert myself as an artist, and develop a characteristic and recognizable “handwriting”?

Dominik Schmitt creates pictures that are idiosyncratic in the best sense of the word, that catch the eye, that linger in the memory.  Pictures that the viewer cannot possibly grasp at first glance due to their complexity and  richness of detail. Should he nonetheless try to do so, he will be easily deceived. First of all, there is the dark coloration with a rich spectrum of broken black, gray, and earth tones, resulting in an unsettling and slightly melancholic basic mood. In terms of motifs, Schmitt’s  paintings confront us with glimpses into the inner workings of human and animal life.  Although the figurative dominates, the creatures in Schmitt’s pictorial world are always highly  idiosyncratic beings from an in between realm, located beyond reality. Again and again we  encounter amalgams of human and animal, often with limbs deformed or out of proportion.  They sometimes seem to almost jump out of the picture – possessing a terrible beauty and  fascination in their uniqueness, in their otherness. One might feel a bit transported to the  world of figures found on the capitals and among the gargoyles of Romanesque and Gothic churches, or in the depictions of hell of a Hieronymus Bosch or Pieter Breughel – a playful  approach to the unfathomable and the frightening.
