Born in East Germany, Cornelia Thomsen now lives in New York. Her first exhibition in Japan features two contrasting series: the colorful “Stripes,” inspired by seascapes, and the monochrome “Structures,” expressing the essence of nature.
The “Structures” section will provide visitors with an experience that contrasts with the “Stripes” but is no less captivating. A series of delicately constructed monochrome ink hatched markings made using a pen nib continually dipped into an inkwell, these drawings magnificently showcase the German’s acute attention to detail.
As Thomsen explains in her interview with us, My ‘Stripes’ paintings have a strong presence and a three-dimensional effect that can only be perceived in person; my ‘Structures’ drawings are so minute that small printed reproductions cannot fully convey their character.”
See these fascinating works in person until June 20.
