Rosenberg & Co. - 'From a Passing Shape': Modernist Works on Paper > 27.02.2021


13/01/2021

Rosenberg & Co. is pleased to present the new exhibition: “From a Passing Shape”: Modernist Works on Paper

Artists have long relied on paper as a fundamental support material. Paper is easily accessible and arguably the most familiar and humble medium. These qualities have led artists to use paper in a variety of ways, from the rough translation of ideas to the exploration of nontraditional processes. Artists have continued, and will continue, to reinvestigate and redeploy this everyday medium.
 
The exhibition takes its title from the words of Pablo Picasso. He wrote, “The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.” The artists presented in this exhibition find inspiration in an equally vast array of subject matters and materials and are brought together, in the galleries, by their use of paper. From sketch to still-life, from collage to construction, paper is used as both a receptacle of the artists’ chosen media—graphite, ink, pastel, acrylic, oil, tempera, watercolor—and as itself a medium, as seen in the collages of Henri Laurens and Morris Barazani and the constructions of Oleg Kudryashov.
Morris Barazani, Untitled (Derek Timmerman), 1970s, collage on paper, 12.4 x 10.5 in.

This exhibition (January 11 – February 27) is held in conjunction with:
