Ulrich Erben : Spaces of Light and Colour

11 Feb-12 Mar 2022

Overview

BASTIAN Gallery are bring never-before-seen paintings by one of the masters of Colour Field Painting, Ulrich Erben, to their London gallery this February. Featuring new works from 2021, alongside earlier pieces, Spaces of Light and Colour will illuminate Erben’s particular interest in the architecture and dimensions of space and how this is realised through subtle modulations in light, tone and hue. Highlights include early works like Farben der Erinnerung (Colours of Memory) from 1994 and Aura (2012), as well as his more recent Untitled, 2021. Side-by-side, Spaces of Light and Colour will reveal the core theme of his work; the reciprocal relationship of non-figurative and simple forms, while the paintings themselves provoke reflections on subject, composition and the continual allure of Colour Field Painting.
