»The hand learns by painting«.
Häusler Contemporary is pleased to present the third solo exhibition of Alejandra Seeber in Munich. The Argentinean painter, known for her refreshing use of the traditional medium, presents selected works of recent years and embeds them in a vast, painterly concept that was created especially for our gallery.
In her paintings, artist Alejandra Seeber (*1968, Buenos Aires, AR, lives in New York, US) explores the painterly possibilities between figuration and abstraction in her paintings. Their ambivalent imagery cannot be decoded on a linear path, since in her colorful shining paintings, out of nonrepresentational elements, narrative references suddenly emerge. There are allusions to subjects that dissolve instantly into expressive chromaticity and gestural dynamics. These dichotomies and the encounter of different motives let her works become many-faceted and surprising.
Seeber’s new exhibition at Häusler Contemporary Munich is called »Rather Ripped« and includes works from the last four years. With the title, the artist refers to the overall design concept, which was created especially for our gallery space: rags are ripped off the wallpaper so that flat, pointed reliefs like stalactites remain which will be transformed by the artist into a all connectional wall painting.
