Artists at the Galerie B

Masayo Odahashi

Masayo Odahashi Born in 1975 in Mie in Japan, Masayo Odahashi knows how to fascinate people with the expressions of her sculptures. She is inspired by everyday life. With no apparent meaning on first glance, it could be anything: colors, shapes, old items, memories, traditional Japanese fairy tales. “I take it up, try to combine different aspects and in the end a shape emerges from it. My work is important to me as well“, the young artist says. Masayo Odahashi has been awarded numerous prizes, including the International Kanazawa Glass Award. more information...

Josepha Gasch-MucheJosepha Gasch-Muche Atelier-1.jpg

Following Dejonghe, Galerie B will present works by Josepha Gasch-Muche. Her usually large-format picture objects consist of extremely thin fragmented glass with an infinite number of different shapes stacked and invisibly fixed on canvas or on hard surfaces. The inclination and density of the different layers of glass determine the structure and the arrangement of the object. The artist takes thousands of tiny pieces of glass, originally intended for the use in mobile phone displays (150 micrometers thin) and converts them into fascinating works of art. Light from different angles keeps changing the object’s appearance. more information...

Very interesting exhibition

Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung Tension and relaxation, strain and rest – the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung dedicates this year’s exhibition to this complex of themes. Under the title “Frozen-in Tension” more than 30 sculptures made of glass created by international artists as well as works by the German photographer Jessica Backhaus will be presented from 29 April 2010 to 27 January 2010. The title of the exhibition – a technical term taken from the area of heat treatment – is multilayered. It describes the subject as well as the material of the works exposed. Made of molten glass, now cold and solidified, the sculptures at first glance seem to rest in themselves. A longer or closer look, though, turns relaxation, regularity and calmness into subtle anticipation, distraught anxiety, or an explosive emotional force. more information...
