In the Viewing Room:
Christian Eckart

On View from Saturday, March 10 to
Saturday, March 31, 2018

TrépanierBaer is pleased to present three recent works by Christian Eckart from his Limbus Series in our Viewing Room.

Long attracted to abstracting the allure of religious art and traditional icon painting, Eckart formalizes a classical pictorial space with broad bevelled frame structures… Importantly, the frames are fabricated to appear as if they are broken on the diagonal, with the right half riding higher than the left. In this simple strategy of fracture and shift, Eckart encapsulates a falling/rising dynamic that provides an eloquent sense of motion…The heft and sheen of the objects make convincing formal transit points for the viewer.

Op. Cit., Richard Rhodes, Haunting Holbein Essay, 2015

We look forward to seeing you at the gallery!
