"Scheduled to coincide with the year’s longest days as the sea-sons transition from spring to summer, “Slowly” meditates on the appearance and disappearance of light."
"Slowly" May 28- July 17th
Galerie Rodolphe Janssen is proud to announce the debut of a new series of sculptures and paintings by artist Sam Moyer that address the dimensional, architectural, and environmental characteristics of the gal-lery as site. Installed in the center of the room are three large sculptures set in a row on axis with the gal-lery’s signature double-pitched skylights. Scheduled to coincide with the year’s longest days as the sea-sons transition from spring to summer, “Slowly” meditates on the appearance and disappearance of light.
If there is one unifying interest across a diverse body of work with an expanding vocabulary of material form, it is Moyer’s investment in the effects of light and its impact on the integration and disintegration of space. In previous bodies of work light as an artificial phenomena was explored, notably through the inter-action of a concealed lighting grid hung above the suspended canvases of Moyer’s standout titular sculp-ture More Weight. Following these presentations, her work is now oft-cited in comparison to that of Richard Serra. However, Moyer’s commitment to the illusion of depth and the spatial experiences of light in space align her work more notably to the perceptual works of Robert Irwin or to the pictorial austerity found in paintings by Agnes Martin.
