The title of the show is shared with a new installation that runs along and around the center wall of the Diana Lowenstein Gallery. The structure is made of individually colored wooden bars which are constructed into a hollow wall on which several paintings are hanging. The installation plays off the architecture of the space as well as reminding us of the stretchers behind the paintings themselves. As Domig’s beautifully obscure paintings have a tendency to escape into the blurriness of their own shapes and colors, the wooden construction becomes the anchor by stabilizing these hovering canvases.
All of the artist’s installations have always attempted to lay bare the experience of looking at art as well as the conditions needed for immersing oneself in it. They also serve to bridge the gap that is left when the paintings leave the uncertainties of the studio, and are placed within the sterile, white-box environment of the gallery.
