10 days left to see our current exhibition “gate/grid/tree (notes/on/concrete)” by british artist Andrew Bick @vonbartha , Basel. On view until May 26. –

A shift in pace and mood is noticeable in a set of “slow-time paintings” hung as a group at the back of the gallery. These works have been re-painted over the past five to ten years, covering or scraping off versions that Bick feels could take further interrogation. They reference, among others, Lax’s poem “the light — the shade” which presents an interface between the absolutes of concrete principles and the eventualities of being alive. The works relate to the optical hesitations and unpredictability of everyday looking; for Bick they are both a visual poem and a delineation of the space between – “a logical concrete system and shit that just happens”. –
