AUFLÖSUNG: BEYOND THE SURFACE DEBUTS
MONTREAL, CANADA - March 24th, 2010 German born artist Maria Doering's thesis exhibition Auflösung: beyond the surface debuts next week (April 3rd-14th, 2010) at the Concordia University MFA Gallery. Doering's artwork explores the interrelationships between interior and exterior physical experiences, seeking connections which allows unseen depths to surface and merge with the environment.
Doering creates a wholly unique approach to print-based installation. The work created for this exhibition has been in development since her BFA at the Hartford Art School in Connecticut, where she specialized in traditional printmaking and life drawing. Doering's graduate studies at Concordia have allowed her ideas to evolve into a profound understanding of her concentration: Her body as a sentient vehicle for understanding and expressing both physical and psychological experience through a rigourous and engaged print practice. She speaks through "a vocabulary of patterns" to explore the layers of both the print medium and the body's interaction with the internal and external world. The printmaking approaches featured in this exhibition range from highly rendered portraits in lithography to larger than life linocuts printed on delicate rice paper and fabrics, suspended and shaped to suggest the human form.
The Vernissage of Auflösung: beyond the surface is being held on Saturday April 10th, 2009 from 4 to 7PM.
