Shattered, stacked, fixed: glass art by Josepha Gasch-Muche

Josepha Gasch-Muche.jpg Josepha Gasch-Muche works with ultra-thin glass splinters, stacking them on top of and next to each other and fixing them in that position. The alignment and density of the stacking determine the structure and order of the art work. The artist from the region of Saarland (Germany), who was awarded the Bavarian State Prize (Bayerischer Staatspreis) does not name her art works, she simply labels them with their date of origin. Her sculptural works give the impression of paintings, a fact Gasch-Muche emphasizes by adding white granules. Light from different angles keeps changing the object’s appearance. The Galerie B will present works by Gasch-Muche from 17 October 2010 to 17 February 2011. more information....

Current exhibition

Works by the French artist Bernard Dejonghe

Bernard Dejonghe “The shapes I move around are always plain. Geometrical bodies, circles, triangles, lines”, Dejonghe describes. Because of their ratio of space to scale, his glass blocks are in direct connection with the observer. Natural desert glass, which is formed when desert sand is struck by lightning, is one of the keys to Dejonghe’s art. Under the title “clear and wild“, new works by the well-known glass artist can be admired at the Galerie B, Contemporary Glass, in Sinzheim (Germany) till 10 September, 2010. 25 works made of optical glass are accompanied by jagged, darker ceramic works. more information...
