Brent Wadden’s work references both the historical and social constructs of craft and modernism through dialogues between weaving and various modes of modernist art making. Working within the vein of assemblage, Wadden makes paintings by piecing together his hand woven weavings to create large scale, hard-edge geometric abstractions. In contrast to traditional painting, the composition is decided during the final stages of preparation and the use of light and dark create a positive / negative space which shifts between foreground to background.

  • Selections - Online Viewing Room


    May 11 - 22, 2020

     

    Almine Rech is pleased to share with you a selection of new artworks by eleven artists the gallery represents. Entitled "Selections", the presentation takes place in our newly built 'viewing room.' It all began with the idea of expanding the experience of seeing art to a digital space where distance, simulation, and digitally constructed environments prevail, temporarily. These works in which body, figure and the identities’ essence are evident in the casting should have been presented for the first time this spring at Art Monaco, Art Brussels, and TEFAF New York, events which have either been postponed or canceled. Thus fostering proximity with an assembly of talents from the gallery, the ‘viewing room’ offers the possibility to encounter each work in a digital environment.
