FEATURED ARTIST: Morgane Tschiember
Physically and metaphysically, Morgane Tschiember’s practice blurs the distinction between painting and sculpture. Characterized by a wide-open, nonhierarchical approach to materials, her oeuvre inspires new interpretations and unexpected dialogues related to traditional sculptural mediums and techniques. Continually pushing herself and her work in new directions, Tschiember applies hands-on approaches to an ever-increasing cache of materials, which currently includes blown-glass, oil paint, metal, concrete, ceramic, wood, and marble. Addressing essential three-dimensional formal concerns, Tschiember’s sculptures—in particular her large-scale works such as Swing and Asphalt—reference 1970s Minimalism and Conceptualism as well as more recent aesthetics like “Scatter Art.”
As a result, her sculptures try to not only stand in three dimensions, but include others such as time, action, movement, flux or fluids, opening up the place a piece takes and how it relates to were it stands.
