A Momentary Rise of Reason is the first UK-solo exhibition of the work of Romanian painter Dan Voinea. Hailing from a new school of contemporary realist painting, Voinea and his contemporaries (fellow Romanian Adrian Ghenie, Dutch Michaël Borremans, or the UK’s own Justin Mortimer, to name a few) have not only endured an early 20th century phase that appeared to prefer whimsy and liberty over realism (consider momentarily the surge in popularity of work by Peter Doig, Cecily Brown or Gary Hume, for instance,) but have prevailed, spearheading the recent reinvigoration of realist painting occurring on an international scale to an unprecedented degree.
