Ripo – What Once Was (Solo exhibition)

A solo exhibition at AF Gallery in Cologne, Germany.
We cannot stop. We must move forward. Growth. Expansion. Progress. Evolution. We don’t yearn for less friends, a smaller house, a smaller bank account, less notoriety. The goals we set are for streamlining our upgrades, building on and in turn making obsolete what it was we craved and loved only yesterday.
The advances we’ve made in digital information and communication allow for ever-increasing speed of growth while at the same time create more possibility to destroy and lose that information in the blink of an eye. “The basic fact of modern life… ‘All that is solid melts into air.’” – Marshall Berman
W.O.W. (What Once Was)“ presents Max Rippon’s latest works on canvas and wood. The exhibition’s title refers to the fundamental transience of modern life – the constant process of creation, destruction, and transformation in the material just as much as the immaterial.
