FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BIRGIT BRENNER: Ten Code 56
September 7 - October 3, 2014
Opening Reception: September 7, 2014
MARC STRAUS is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by German artist Birgit Brenner. This will be the artist’s second solo show with the gallery and will inaugurate our fall season.
Birgit Brenner creates her works out of the dramas of everyday life, and this is mimicked in her use of common materials. Mediums like wood, cardboard, and acrylic paint are combined like a modern-day Assemblage, blurring the line between painting, sculpture, and drawing.
For this exhibition, Brenner has created a body of work developed around a narrative from dreams perhaps, fraught with the tensions of possible failures in relationships and with societal norms. These then translate into wonderfully idiosyncratic rich works that are visually laced with a sense of irony and humor...
The Denver Art Museum has announced a full museum traveling exhibition of Jeffrey Gibson works to date opening in 2017.
MARC STRAUS proudly announces it has been selected to the TOP 100 Galleries Flash Art: May - June 2014
