Since the 1990's, Gabriele Basch has been working with cut-outs and translating the age-old tradition of silhouettes into an idiosyncratic and innovative language of forms. The artist interweaves creation and destruction, planning and chance into a complex, multi-layered reality and makes views into the spatial environment an integral part of her work. In her paper and foil cut-outs, foreground and background, materiality and void combine to form a whole that oscillates between painting and drawing, urban structures and hints of the biomorphic, through delicate color gradients, swirling structures, spontaneous gestures, and stenciled surfaces. This generously illustrated monograph offers a comprehensive overview of the artist's work from 2008 to 2019.
