Opening August 27: Cornelia Thomsen Solo Exhibition, Unfolding Ratio
By: SEI-RIN Co., Ltd.
Opening on August 27, the artist's 3rd solo exhibition in Japan will present the New York-based German artist's late to early works, from Thomsen's iconic Stripes, to her monochrome GR series and her portraits, which will make their first exhibition in Japan.
Born in East Germany during a period when Realism was the sole aesthetic, Thomsen discovered Abstraction following the unification of East and West Germany. While the artist began her career as a figurative painter, she subsequently pursued abstract modes of expression and developed her representative Stripes series, transforming natural scenes into abstracted, minimalist works.
Although best recognized for her abstract works, Thomsen's recent portrait series marks the artist's return to figuration. In contrast to her early works, this series melds figuration with the "light" present within Thomsen's abstract paintings and offers a novel aesthetic.
In addition to her portraits, Unfolding Ratio will present Thomsen's minimalist black-and-white GR series, her watercolor Garden series, oil on copper works as well as her NFT work, offering a diverse display of Thomsen's multifaceted oeuvre.
