Untitled (Mars Black), 2016, Pigment and Casein colour on wood, 24 x 18 cm
The installations of the artist Sofie Thorsen (b 1971), living in Vienna, refer to questions of space, architecture and perception. Usually, her work is guided by a special interest in a certain object or circumstance.
Using this as a starting point the artist develops her pictures and installations. At the moment, Thorsen's work focuses on lines, surfaces and the exhibition wall. The fine lines of her pictures are created by oscillating a pigment dusted chalk line.
Other central topics are photography and paper as "sculptural materials". Is a paper sheet elevated, it gains a three-dimensional effect. When cut into a form other than a normal square, it becomes a complex, fragile sculpture. This three-dimensional image and the blurred, intensive pigment lines make up the centre of her work and are testament to the fragile qualities of image and space that surround us.
