Miriam Visaczki @ Piper Keys Gallery

16 April 2016 - 15 May 2016

Vienna-based artist Miriam Visaczki shows new work To Cut Down a Baobab Tree from two series, one comprising plaster reliefs, the other felt wall hangings. In Visaczki’s plaster works the image of a domestic interior has been cast as a solid plaster relief. Over and into this surface the artist has painted the form of a crude figure. Limbs extrude awkwardly, ending in lumpy fists. With their two- tone shaded surfaces, the bodies are reminiscent of computer-generated forms. In the second series of works, consisting of felt wall hangings, the interplay between natural and domestic worlds continues. Here Visaczki picks up on materials and motifs she encountered in the classrooms of a Steiner Kindergarten: the felt is used to shape faces, animals, stones, an owl.
