Ute Müller

Ute Müller Work from her oeuvre. “…This body of works – paintings, architectural structures, sculptural references – defines a space where the viewer is immediately captured by the beauty of a painting that has its origins in the history of twentieth century abstraction. Yet this is only a transitory emphasis, an instant of burning passion […]

Helen Marten

Helen Marten Work from her oeuvre. “Marten treats physical stuff the digital way: she drags and drops, compresses and unpacks, crashes and reboots. She’s obviously not the only one doing this, but she does it in a way that is as comfortable with sculpture as hammering or welding (although she actually does occasionally hammer and […]

Mikhail Bakhtin I have spent all my […]

Diane Simpson

Diane Simpson Work from her oeuvre. “The six pieces in the show all appear to be based on wearable items that have had three-dimensionality steam-pressed out, but that still retain a sense of volume and, additionally, assume new functional identities. A brand new work, “Collar (Pagoda),” appears to be the enlarged version of a clerical […]

Surface Poetry
