Info

Karin Weber Gallery is pleased to present Shifting Surfaces: Group Show by German artists Willi Siber, Angela Glajcar, Udo Noger and Tina Buchholtz. In this exhibition, the gallery explores artists rooted in a specific culture, yet whose artistic practice defies place or origin.

Art with global resonance differentiates itself stylistically from its more regional counterparts. Uncoupled from a specific locality, it embraces universal and abstract themes which, in turn, invite individual perspectives and interpretations.
In Shifting Surfaces, the artworks are characterized by a wide range of textures, not geographic or cultural references. In this exhibition shiny steel sculptures and sanded down works in acrylic coalesce with hand-worked paper and gleaming mixed media canvases. The surfaces of these works capture the underlying complexity and unexpected universal simplicity of these pieces.

Art with global resonance differentiates itself stylistically from its more regional counterparts. Uncoupled from a specific locality, it embraces universal and abstract themes which, in turn, invite individual perspectives and interpretations.
In Shifting Surfaces, the artworks are characterized by a wide range of textures, not geographic or cultural references. In this exhibition shiny steel sculptures and sanded down works in acrylic coalesce with hand-worked paper and gleaming mixed media canvases. The surfaces of these works capture the underlying complexity and unexpected universal simplicity of these pieces.

Willi Siber is a master of blurring the lines that divide sculpture and painting. His glossy, brightly colored surfaces coat steel and wooden structures alike. Angela Glajcar’s ephemeral works in layered paper or glass borrow light and shadow in order to reveal the rich, tactile quality of her medium. Udo Noger works with oil and quartzite to give his canvases an unexpected luminescence. Tina Buchholtz layers her canvases in acrylic only to sand them down, revealing a meandering surface of color bursts and pattern.

Taken together, these artists, born to a single culture, embrace the universal in their artistic practices. Their artworks are accessible to a broader audience because they speak the timeless language of color and form.

These surfaces, shifting before the eye, are meant to be appreciated from the viewpoint of the onlooker regardless of their geographical or cultural tethering.
