I am very happy that Neil Goldberg, guest curator from Yale featured my work on @foundwork.art besides two other painters, Ann Toebbe (Chicago) and Lauren West (Brooklyn).
Marius von Brasch (b. 1958, Cologne, Germany;@mariusvonbrasch) is one of the latest artists featured in our Guest Curators program on Foundwork. von Brasch was chosen by Neil Golderg (@shecky2000), an acclaimed American video, photo, mixed media, and performance artist represented by Cristin Tierney Gallery, New York, and a Critic at Yale School of Art.
About von Brasch’s practice, Goldberg comments that "I love the dynamic between restraint and exuberance in Marius von Brasch’s work. In his spare drawings, the marks tend to engage each other from a respectful distance; in his paintings, the visual elements—rendered in hyper-saturated pinks, oranges, and greens—are inclined to commingle ardently." As Goldberg observes—and as you can see by swiping left here—there’s a notable duality in von Brasch’s work between compositions that are dense or sparse, permeated with color or situated largely on fields of white. We love how this formal dialogue helps us to better recognize not only those differences but also the stylistic harmonies across von Brasch’s practice.
