until 11.01. | #2616ARTatBerlin | Galerie Thomas Schulte currently shows the exhibition layers by the artist Angela de la Cruz.

Layers is the title of the first solo exhibition by Angela de la Cruz at Galerie Thomas Schulte. In her works, the artist, who was born in Spain in 1965, puts the structural qualities of painting into question by liberating them from their two-dimensional existence. Canvases and stretcher frames are cut, torn, and broken for this purpose and emerge as objects that challenge their categorization as painting. De la Cruz thus—literally and quite brutally—detaches the idea of the picture from its physical carrier as well as from tradition: “The moment I cut through the canvas I get rid of the grandiosity of painting.”
