“The Edge of the Sea” will be on display in Houston December 3 – January 7
From December 3 – January 7, you can see the exhibition “The Edge of the Sea” by Cecilia Vissers at Gray Contemporary. The gallery aims to provide a platform for the work of upcoming international artists in an environment that exists between the conventions of an artist-run space and a commercial gallery.
Cecilia Visser’s sculptures have precedents in constructivism and minimalism. Her serial arrangements and her emphasis on the presence of the material closely relate to the work of the minimalists.
“Many of my works consist of multiple panels, the space between the individual panels becomes part of the work. The single geometric elements that are repeated form a larger composition, I like to think of my work as one installation piece.” Cecilia Vissers lives and works in Sint-Oedenrode , the Netherlands. In 1993 she graduated from the Academy for Art & Design, ’s-Hertogenbosch. Her solo exhibitions include Galerie Floss&Schultz in Cologne, ParisCONCRET in Paris & Masters/Pelavin in New York. Group exhibitions include “3 Künstlerinnen aus 3 Ländern” at Multipleart, Zurich, The Sylvia Wald and Po Kim Art Gallery in New York. She has been a resident at the Heinrich Böll Foundation in Ireland and Virginie Janssens Stichting in France.
