The new Urban Contemporary Art Guide was recently published by Graffiti Art Magazine. Just like in the 2013 edition I am featured amongst many great artists in the Talents section. There’s also an announcement for my next solo show in it (see images below). The book was published in English and in French. To get your copy go to the shop page of Graffiti Art Magazine here.
The Kaleidoscope cans I created especially as part of my solo show “Reflections” at Kolly Gallery. Here is the text that explains the objects in little more detail:
“The idea for the Kaleidoscope cans is based on the transparent, glass like layers of MadC’s canvases. They too combine the strong and the fragile in one piece. What happens by chance is combined with well thought through elements of calligraphy, taken from the canvases and transferred into hand cut pieces of thin coloured glass. When the Kaleidoscope is directed towards the light, the shapes are being reflected in the mirrors to create images in endless variations.
One of MadC’s tools to create her canvases and murals is the spray can. The spray can also is an important part of MadC’s creative history. Therefore the Kaleidoscope also appears in the shape of a 600ml spray can that was especially produced in various pieces of anodised aluminium and is limited to 8 pieces. Each Kaleidoscope is painted differently and filled with coloured glass and crystal elements that match the outside of the Kaleidoscope. Each Kaleidoscope weights about 1,2kg.”
If you want to see it for yourself, visit the Kolly Gallery in Zurich until 4th of October 2014. Below you find a little video that shows the making of and a view inside of the Kaleidoscopes.
Last Thursday, 4th of September, my solo show “Reflections” opened at Kolly Gallery in Zurich, Switzerland. It was a wonderful evening in a beautiful gallery. Thanks to the many people who showed up! If you are in the area – the show is on until 4th of October. There’s also a new silkscreen print out that is available on the gallery’s website since today. If you want to get one go to the shop page here. The exhibition catalogue is also available on the shop page.
Thanks a lot to Julien and his team, my family and friends and Marco Prosch – the best photographer there is – for helping me on the way to this beautiful exhibition. During this week I will upload a little film about the Kaleidoscope cans that are on display in the gallery. So stay tuned…
