We're looking forward to the first solo-exhibition by Eva Berendes at VAN HORN.

Large-format grid surfaces assembled with common items such as everyday objects, raw materials and flowing fabrics - they are all found objects which lose their actual function within their new array and enter into relationships with each other.

What seems spontaneously arranged at first, involves comprehensive considerations: it is apparent that the artist follows specific principals in terms of selection and assembly when she consequently shifts between transparency and opacity, between static and smoothly falling materials. Accordingly, the choice of materials becomes an extension of the compositional process and the configuration of the objects constitutes a balancing act, in which every newly added item influences the impression of the whole framework.

The selected elements and the geometrical shapes eventually refer concretely to painterly traditions and to the imagery of non-representational art.

Within their two-dimensionality, the hand welded grids provide virtually infinite possibilities for the artistic arrangements; and due to their neutrality, they become an arena, in which the image can take place. Berendes' Grids are situated along the boundary between two- and three-dimensional objects - they take up real space, but simultaneoulsy, they always remain an image.

Opening Friday June 7, 7 - 9 pm
