The New Face Of Smiling
2005
acrylic on canvas
183 x 214cm

Bart Exposito’s geometric paintings don’t draw from utopian ideals or a revision of abstraction, but rather the cold neutrality of graphic design. More pop than pop, his flat pantone coloured canvases celebrate the zen-like fizz of commodified nothingness. Seducing with the plastic banality of album covers or corporate logos, Exposito’s The New Face of Smiling negotiates both aesthetics and its functions as cultural interface and lifestyle arbitration. Through his ultra-flat, airtight compositions Exposito enforces the impersonal and anonymous as a comforting numbness.
