Natalie Reusser: CHARLIE

8. Dezember 2017 – 20. Januar 2018

Balzer Projects is proud to present CHARLIE, the second solo show of Natalie Reusser in the gallery. On view is her most recent work, which consists of abstract paintings and three-dimensional work, fabric interceptions and installations.

Industrial fabrics have interested Reusser for a long time, because of their physical structure, elusive character and intrinsic resistance to aesthetic manipulation. Trained as a painter, Reusser questions traditional conceptions of aesthetic visualization.

In CHARLIE works are juxtaposed with paint layered and stretched on linen, lace, canvas and jersey, to assemblages and objects made of glass- and carbon fibers; gesso and clay, oil- and acrylic paint, carbon-, glass-, aramide-, or Dyneema fabric, crocheted, knitted, weaved and layered. Reusser also collects fabrics with a history and visible signs of use.
