I just received some photos from the curator of the exhibition in Italy, where several of my prints were exhibited. Details of the exhibition are below:
FILLING THE VOID Escher and beyond
StadtGalerie Galleriy Civica – Brixen/Bressanone
From January 20th to February 28th 2017
Many know the works of Dutch artist Maurits Cornelis Escher, addressing the tessellation of the plane. The image of an insect (a horseman, a bird or a dog …) repeats itself, covering the plane completely without leaving gaps. One can only admire such talent: if we take a closer look, there is even more to discover. These tiles are reducible to regular polygons (triangles, squares, hexagons) or combinations of them. Escher is the most popular, but not the only figurative artist exploring the “regular division of the plane” as scientists would say. Before him, there was Koloman Moser, exponent of the Viennese Art Nouveau, followed by several contemporary artists such as Andrew Crompton, David Hop, Hans Kuiper, Francine Champagne, Alain Nicolas, Robert Fathauer and Sam Brade.
The exhibition “Filling the void – Escher and beyond” taking place at the city gallery of Brixen, presents some of the graphical works of these artists: in total 26 works, most of them prints. An information sheet describing its particular characteristics accompanies every single work. Amongst the works exposed, there are eight tessellations of M.C. Escher and some aperiodic tessellations by Richard Hassell.
