Current Show at Galerie Victor Sfez - On View Through April 23


DANIEL G. HILL develops a sensitive geometry.
He chooses fragile materials that he weaves, knots, suspends, sometimes playing with the influence of gravity, which he uses to his advantage. A keen observer, he seizes the moment and the detail to create work of unusual and poetic balance.

JOCELYNE SANTOS is a color magician.
As much in her paintings as in her sculptures, contrasting tones are juxtaposed with harmony, giving birth to unexpected chromatic variations. We never complete our discovery of her palette. New nuances invite surprise, illusions dazzle our eyes, and that which is hidden in the work ends up being its main concern.

SHAWN STIPLING works with perception.
Space is always present, suggested by clever crossings and misleading offsets that generate new virtual planes. The simplicity of his line is only an appearance: executed by hand, it still takes on a deliberately mechanical look. Confiding to us, the thin edges of his works retain traces of superposed layers of paint, revealing what is behind the scenes.

BOGUMILA STROJNA fabricates space.
Her works can be on the wall, laid on the ground or sometimes married to the construction of the site that hosts them. Although often playful, her work has the rigor of architecture. While being in an ongoing search for materials in which she favors the industrial, her approach cannot be dissociated from the human; the refuge and the abode, a utopian space to inhabit.
