Richard Höglund: Symposium, The Bonnier-Gallery, Miami, 2019
A painting, like drinking together, is a strange attractor for thoughts of a higher order. A painting lets our thoughts smolder in the embers of ancient fires lit in the pursuit of truth, in the pursuit of the divine”– Richard Höglund
In Höglund’s latest suite of paintings the artist uses wine as his primary medium, in conversation with the famed 11th century quatrains of The Rubáiyát, by Persian astronomer and poet Omar Khayyam. In these works, Höglund utilizes experimental materials and techniques to heighten interconnected rituals of divinity and collective celebration. Citing figures as varied as Shiva and Dionysus as inspiration, Höglund’s wine paintings encourage a collaborative interpretation that amplify the mystical and the poetic.
Symposium embodies the ancient Greek practice of ‘drinking together’ calling to action thoughts of seraphic importance; this body of work functions as a similar vehicle for transcendental thought: “A painting, like drinking together, is a strange attractor for thoughts of a higher order,” Höglund explains, “A painting lets our thoughts shoulder in the embers of ancient fires lit in the pursuit of truth, in the pursuit of the divine”.

His wine paintings encourage a collaborative interpretation that amplify the mystical and the poetic.
