„Brandon Lipchik is interested in the process of distortion and dissociation of a picture, which can occur both in the digital realm and on canvas. He masks a picturesque scene such as the Caprian landscape with lovers and collages occasionally bizarre and contradictory compositions. Lipchik confronts the viewer with male role models and ideas of paradise as calcified cliches. Similar to David Hockney’s pool images, this salutary exile becomes a constricting place. As with Hockney, the idyll is, at second glance, tarnished by damaged relationships, artificiality and solitude. This way of approaching pictorial dissociation is also a chance to broaden one-sided ways of reading and to react to the diversity of contemporary visual culture. Lipchik bridges the gaps between digital space and the material world by means of an airbrushed trompe-l’œil effect. With a superimposed layer of paint, Lipchik brings the painting closer into the gallery space, revealing a new, distinctly idiosyncratic mode of contemporary painting.“
