Rosa Ort. Painting-objects made of hard fibre or aluminium that seem to hover before the wall in freely contoured geometrical forms
Rosa Ort. The German artist creates painting-objects made of hard fibre or aluminium that seem to hover before the wall in freely contoured geometrical forms. Radically non-representational and reduced to the artistic principles of form and colour, his paintings nevertheless have a sensual effect. In large formats, the flat wall-sculptures possess a monumental presence whilst simultaneously hovering weightlessly. In his new work cycle that will be shown, Imi Knoebel transposes characteristics of his artistic creativity into a new formal language. He paints aluminium plates in various forms with acrylic paint, each in a single colour, and joins them together into a plane through shadow-joins. Opening 8 March, 6-9pm; the artist will be attending.
