Follow the Line // Pieter Obels (NL), Benjamin Rubloff (USA), Maribel Mas (VEN)
FOLLOW THE LINE – everything proceeds from the line, the common thread of the new exhibition, presented in the expressive forms of sculpture, painting and drawing. This international show with the Dutch sculptor Pieter Obels, the Berlin-based painter American Benjamin Rubloff and the Venezuelan graphic artist Maribel Mas, now resident in Leipzig, shows how impressive, varied and compelling the compositional element of the line can be in the artistic process.
The exhibition shows the very varying characteristics of the ‘object of artistic examination’ in Pieter Obels’ steel sculptures, Benjamin Rubloff’s graffiti paintings or Maribel Mas’s pen-and-ink drawings. Now robust and vibrant, now strong and direct, now light and delicate.
The uniqueness of the artistic handwriting is characterised by the form and configuration of the line, which crucially influences the emotional impression that the work sparks in the viewer.
Pieter Obels, Benjamin Rubloff and Maribel Mas will attend the opening.
