10 FEB – 09 MAR – SOLO AIRY SPACES II’

Artist: Henri Wagner (FR, 1981)
Opening: Saturday 10 February, 3 – 5 pm

Henri Wagner’s new solo show ‘Airy Spaces II’ in gallery Helder is a follow-up to the exhibition of the same name some three years ago. Almost all of his latest works are also made with the ‘sous verre’ technique, a way of painting backwards on glass. The front of the work therefore shows all the first steps on the glass carrier, behind and next to which the subsequent layers are visible. The images of the past, transparent through the glass, are now making way for more closed forms in stronger, mutually communicating colours.

De nieuwe solo-show ‘Airy Spaces II’ van Henri Wagner bij galerie Helder is een vervolg op de gelijknamige expositie bijna drie jaar geleden. Ook zijn nieuwste werken zijn nagenoeg allemaal gemaakt met de ‘sous verre’ techniek, een manier van achterstevoren schilderen op glas. De voorkant van het werk toont dus alle eerste aanzetten op de drager glas, waarachter en -naast de volgende lagen zichtbaar zijn. De -door het glas- transparante beelden van toen maken nu plaats voor meer gesloten vormen in steviger, onderling communicerende kleuren.
