Upcoming Exhibition / Künsthalle Zurich / Switzerland 2014

Avery Singer
Opening: Friday, 21.11.2014

By not revealing at first glance whether they are paintings or prints, the technically and iconographically astonishing works of Avery Singer (born in 1987 in New York, where she lives and works) are confounding our viewing habits. Art history is expressed here not as a sequence of styles and subjects but is rather considered a constitutive juxtaposition of formal languages and problems. Her experimenting with painting since 2010 is as timely as the visual methods that the artist is exploring. Employing the freeware graphic program SketchUp, which is used for 3D modeling in architecture, Singer constructs complex spatial compositions. She then fills them with abstract figures and objects and transfers these to canvas in shades of gray. Pushed to an extreme, this technique allows Singer to contrast the resulting illusionary spatiality of these pictorial compositions with the flatness of her painting surfaces, in order to raise and pursue art historical and perceptual questions. The physical makeup of her painting is employed both as a condition for and as an objection to the spatial illusion of visual objects. In combination with the motifs in Singer’s works - some explicitly connected to the art world - her most recent cycle, The Artists (2013), is dedicated in a parodistic, autobiographical way to everyday working situations in the arts - this raises questions of which shifts in meaning may result from the conditions of digitality and virtuality in the visual arts and more specifically in the medium of painting.

In her first solo-exhibition in an art institution, Avery Singer will offer new insight into this work by presenting a cycle of works created especially for Kunsthalle Zürich.
