"The harmony and opposition of intersecting planes that project and recede, the sharp edges and smooth curves suggest an interdependence of stasis and motion" Beate Reifenscheid, Director Ludwig Museum, Koblentz
- Additional Information -
Vari’s painted sculptures explore the interaction of volume and plane and the integration of painting and sculpture. In this powerful body of work there is a pronounced shift to verticality, providing an upward flow of juxtaposed circles and planes, half moons, triangles and squares, with contrasting color, and creating a tangible tension between the constructive and the sensual. The sharp contrasts of positive and negative space between the dark bronzes and the color patinas result in a dominant balance of color and light.
The sculptures emit a forceful energy that vibrates within their surroundings. Vari’s art historical references, from African art to Greek mythology combine and merge into a new dynamic and reflect a singular, contemporary vision. Her wide ranging inspirations and diverse subject matter, reflected by titles such as "Le Poete," "La Reine" and "Le Roi," Vari’s works universal and classical, human and abstract.
Vari’s recent one-person exhibitions include the Ludwig Museum in Koblentz, Germany, Monumental sculptures in the cities of Baden-Baden, Germany and Geneva, Switzerland, assemblages at UBS, Geneva and a retrospective at the Boca Raton Museum of Art.
OPENING: Wednesday, October 17, 6-8 p.m.
