Artist Crush: Sati Zech

Wednesday, October 31, 2012 · No Comments

These painting-collages are by the well-known Berlin artist Sati Zech. The first two pieces are dedicated to Louise Bourgeois: Bollenarbeit No. 17. (for L. Bourgeois) and No. 18 (for L. Bourgeois). I definitely see parallels in their work – human-centric forms, meditative repetition, and the idea of art as a way of tapping into a collective, primitive consciousness.

“Although technically referred to as paintings, the works in her vibrant series titled Bollenarbeit—a reference to the vineyard-covered hills and low mountains found in the region where Zech was born—float between paintings, drawings, and sculptures… After tearing apart sheets of canvas, Zech assembles the strips—unraveled edges and all—in horizontal and vertical rows. Sometimes overlapping them, she joins the rows with white archival glue, bits of puttylike plaster and thread before or after applying viscous domes and dots of red paint across the cloth’s surface.” – Lux Art Institute.
