Christoph Meier

Christoph Meier Work from his oeuvre. “While the situations staged by Christoph Meier are characterized by an abstract, geometrical formal vocabulary, the objects used appear to represent a plot. The emphasis here is on the performative and narrative potential of the media and presentation formats themselves. For Christoph Meier, exhibitions are only a moment, an […]

Claire-Jeanne Jézéquel

Claire-Jeanne Jézéquel Work from her oeuvre. “For the works of Claire-Jeanne Jézéquel, we are in painting and sculpture, sculpture and architecture. “It is never in the landscape that we contemplate, “as they make their sculptures into account the illusion of painting. They are drawings coming out of the wall, a horizon to imaginary spaces, and […]

Pieter Vermeersch

Pieter Vermeersch Work from his oeuvre. “There are images that become abstract and there are abstractions that become images. Pieter Vermeersch is not an abstract painter as such but rather an image maker; those mental images he finds in reality by photographic means. There is no such thing as pure abstraction. Everything is connected to […]

Jacob Dahlgren

Jacob Dahlgren Work from Palermo1966 (other works also included). “Palermo1996 explores the allure of the supermarket and removes items directly from the shelves in order to create this contemporary geometric abstraction. As a result of the construction elements, metal and magnets, this work also functions very much as a performance piece, through the building of […]

Thomas Deyle

After leaving the […]

Carlos Cruz-Diez

Carlos Cruz-Diez Work from Chromosaturaion. “These works relate to the idea that in the origin of every culture lies a primary event as a starting point. A simple situation that generates a whole system of thoughts, sensitivity, myths, etc. The Chromosaturation is an artificial environment composed of three color chambers, one red, one green and […]

Koenraad Dedobbeleer

   Koenraad Dedobbeleer Work from his oeuvre. “Remodelling materials into vaguely recognizable forms that suggest functional objects, Dedobbeleer’s 13 sculptures refer primarily to each other: the rounded forms of a non-functional furnace in “Thought Apart From Concrete Realities” (all works 2010) mimic a bulbous replica of large, outdoor planters – abstracted, conjoined and multiplied three […]

John Massey

John Massey Work from After Le Mépris. “…After Le Mépris. This new suite of iconic and bittersweet photographs was inspired by the central scene in Jean Luc Godard’s 1963 film, Le Mépris (Contempt). Massey is known for his metaphysical dramas, enacted in pristine, idealized architectural interiors that he treats like theatre sets. In this series, […]

De Wain Valentine

De Wain Valentine Work from his oeuvre. “The sculptures that Mr. Valentine has made over the last four decades — quasireligious incarnations of coastal light and air made from some of the most sterile, synthetic materials ever produced by American industry — are not exactly low-end  bartering chips. They have been showing up with increasing […]
