THE SILVER MEDALLION

Charles Laib Bitton

January 26 – February 19, 2023

Super Super Markt, Brunnenstr. 22, Berlin

THE SILVER MEDALLION doesn’t take its name in the literal sense: such as an accessory found in one or more of the paintings on view; but from the silver ground primer that Charles Laib Bitton’s canvases have been primed with. Up close, the works as he notes are like ‘Silver Medallions’. The primer – a silver mercury-like liquid that threads its way throughout this latest body of work – offers a nostalgic and ethereal quality to the paintings that were created in Florence from April to December of 2022, where he currently lives and works.
