The group show "Silly Adults," curated simply around the idea of "celebrating the spirit of life" was inspired by the recent birth of gallerist Nikolai Wallner's son. The playful optimism of the exhibition suits common themes of contemporary art well, bringing together works that have a fresh, childlike approach to subject and technique. The chunky ringlets of hair in German artist Cristophe Ruckhäberle's painting (pictured above left), for example, looks like an idea of what curls are supposed to look like. Glasgow-based David Shrigley (whose ouevre includes animations) makes illustrations that seem to explain the world with the giddy humor of a child. (Pictured above right).
