Quayola :: Strata #4 : Excerpt 1




Strata #4 is a multi-channel immersive video-installation commissioned in 2011 by Palais de Beaux Arts in Lille. The subject of this work is a series of iconic pieces from the museum’s Flemish collection, focusing specifically on Rubens’ and Van Dyck’s grand altarpieces. Strata #4 is the result of a study and exploration of the paintings themselves, delving beneath their figurative appearance and looking at the very rules behind the composition, colour schemes and proportions of each piece. It is a precise process aimed at creating new contemporary images based on universal rules of beauty and perfection. Documenting the improbable collisions between classical figurations and contemporary abstraction, Strata #4 aims to create a harmonious dialogue between worlds that may seem very distant from one another, but in fact share so much in common. Strata #4 is part of the ongoing Strata Series.

eva rothschild :: geometric sculptures











Through her elegant sculptural compositions, Eva Rothschild explores the apprehensive relationship between objective form and new-age spiritualism. Rothschild approaches art as tantamount to a numinous belief system, where functionless objects become receptacles for immaterial sentiment, both inciting and emitting their own metaphysical auras. Inspired by 60s and 70s minimalism, Rothschild’s sleek designs evoke sustained contemplation and emotive tension. (edit from High Times, Saatchi gallery)
