Susanne Ackermann and Rossana Martinez:
07/12 - 08/13/3008
The Gallery Sonja Roesch is pleased to announce the exhibition Sequence, featuring work by Susanne Ackermann (Karlsruhe, Germany) and Rossana Martinez (Brooklyn, NY). The exhibition will open July 12th, 2008 and close on August 30th, 2008.
The line, a basic mark-making gesture, transforms itself when repeated. It is through the layering and repetition, or sequence, of a line that shape, form, and depth are achieved. Both Susanne Ackermann and Rossana Martinez are exploring the line in a non-representational, expressive and almost meditative manner.
Susanne Ackermann’s drawings are an exploration of the line within the self-imposed rigid process-based work ethic. She carefully explores not only placement and arrangement of lines, but also the color dynamics between the lines. Through repetition and arrangement, the individual colored pencil lines become part of shapes that in turn take on form.
Rossana Martinez, working conceptually project based, is interested in the Body-Space relationship - a body moving through space in relation to nature and in case of this work, the ocean. A single line made out of blue thread stays constant as the drawn colored pencil lines change from rigid to dynamic.
