ERÖFFNUNG IN DEN NEUEN RÄUMEN
June 9 - August 31, 2010
The Barbara Gross Galerie is very pleased to present Silvia Bächli’s fifth solo-exhibition, the first one at our new space. The show will feature gouaches on paper, most of them accomplished this year. The various-sized drawings will be positioned in the space by the artist herself.
Bächli’s art is distinguished by its reduction in artistic means. The hues of brush strokes run the course from deep black to transparent gray. Translucent lines overlap and intertwine, indicating spatiality. The spectrum of grays absorb color, changing carefully from red to blue to soft green. In order to paint her large works on paper, Bächli lays them out on the floor. Her brush moves in a single, controlled, continual stroke, tracing the space covered by the body in motion.
