The two-artist exhibition The Day I Never Met You at Galerie Kornfeld, Berlin brings together landscapes in spectacular color and pinpoint detail. The explosive color and dramatic brushwork of Georgian painter Natela Iankoshvili and the painstaking detail and anti-natural black and white of British artist AlexanderAdams form a startling complementary pairing for the first time at the gallery. Bringing together two artists who have never had a chance to meet in person but over the years have continued to communicate through their work.
