Opening: Thursday, January 23, 6 - 9 pm
New sculptures and paintings by the artist create an enveloping and unique installation in the gallery space.
Esther Stocker is internationally renowned for her paintings and installations made in an abstract and geometrical perspective, the two genres being closely related to each other. The artist’s installations are three-dimensional projections of her paintings, exclusively made with a limited palette of black, grey and white. Could they be described as spatial, sculptural paintings or rather as pictorial spaces?
“In this exhibition, I want to combine sculptures with paintings. They are structural works with interruptions in geometry, more precisely: systems that show both order and disorder.
I want forms to become free of our expectations. It’s as if we were “constrained” by the things we know and this condition can restrict the space we give to our imagination. I am looking for undefined, vacant, “open” and free points.”
