Invisible Subjects | Kim Bartelt, Tycjan Knut and LRNCE
2nd to 21st March 2020, Cadogan Contemporary
Cadogan Contemporary is delighted to present Invisible Subjects, a group exhibition that brings together new work by Kim Bartelt, Tycjan Knut and LRNCE.
The exhibition explores the idea of paintings as objects, presenting three distinct approaches to abstract painting. The artists are unified via a shared emphasis on taking their painting into the third dimension, beyond colour and composition into structural and physical relationships.
An interest in tactility and surface is also evident throughout the exhibition, from Kim Bartelt's embedded layers of coloured paper to LRNCE's oils and pigments on embroidered hand-woven fabric and the contrasting textures of Tycjan Knut's acrylic paint and marble dust on canvas and hand- constructed wooden frames.
The exhibition takes its title from the almost imperceptible details and structural elements in the works, which reveal their true nature gradually through attention and contemplation. Each artist addresses this passing of time, offering layers of aesthetic appreciation from the immediate to revelatory.
