Beat Zoderer, “First appearance & new works” at Galerie Ruzicska, Salzburg, Austria

First appearance & New works
Solo show
January 25, 2019–April 3, 2019

”I want to bring art back into everyday life – and this is why I create art out of everyday life” says BEAT ZODERER (*1955 Zurich) 2009 in an interview with the Aargauer newspaper and hereby defines the cornerstones of his artistic work. Predominantly industrial materials are being transformed into objects, installations, collages and paintings in a virtuoso manner. The exploration of space is paramount for the artist. His non-representational works subtly question graphic, painterly and sculptural qualities and challenge systems of order in an ironic and playful way. BEAT ZODERER’s references to Constructivism and Minimal Art are as apparent as they are undermined. This becomes palpable when looking at the two works Pentagramme (Pentagrams) in this exhibition: the seemingly perfect three-dimensional, minimalistic, five-sided figures intrigue the viewer with their organic quality given by the painted plywood.
