until 29.08.| #2792ARTatBerlin | Galerie Thomas Schulte presents from 24th July 2020 the solo show “Unit” by the artist Jonas Weichsel and one artwork by the artist Fred Sandback in the corner space of the gallery.
This summer, Galerie Thomas Schulte is very pleased to present German painter Jonas Weichsel’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, alongside a minimalist yarn sculpture by US-American artist Fred Sandback in the Corner Space.
Jonas Weichsel presents in his exhibition Unit new works elaborating on his distinctive painting technique; including meticulously composed gradient paintings. Through the interplay of mechanical precision and the emotive ability of color, the works oscillate between definitude and haziness, material presence and dissolution. Here, Weichsel continues his ongoing pursuit—extending the possibilities of an autonomous painterly language, in dialogue with the media and aesthetics of the digital age.
From the late 1960s, Fred Sandback created an expansive oeuvre of linear sculptures, employing minimal means to achieve spatial effects that combine artwork, space, and the viewer’s perception. This work, using the form of a “broken” triangle and configured for the gallery’s Corner Space, utilizes only a few stretched lines of acrylic yarn to achieve Sandback’s spatial intervention. In the artist’s own words, “My work doesn’t take over a space, but rather coexists with it.”
