Introductie Cecilia Vissers

Cecilia Vissers shaped but hard edge minimalist sculptures are inspired by her love of landscape.
An established artist from The Netherlands, Cecilia Vissers keeps her pallet mostly to a very small number of colours (gray, black and orange being her mainstays) but by a deeply considered shaping of the object and thereby of the colours, the artist inspires a feeling of deep spacial awareness and understanding of the loneliness of being outdoors lost in the forces of huge mountains and deep lakes (text Paul Robertson, Summerhall, Edinburgh, 2013).

Biografie:

Cecilia Vissers’ sculptures and installations are grounded in the remote landscapes of Scotland and Ireland. “My sculptures became more minimal by degrees to the point that since 2006 I have mainly been concerned with wall pieces executed in steel and aluminum. I want my sculptures to be entirely simple, to be viewed quickly, the focus is on the smooth and flat surface obtained by specialized industrial processes”.

Cecilia Vissers’ work has been exhibited widely in galleries and museums in Europe and the US.
The work of Cecilia Vissers has been widely published; recent publications include the monograph ‘Canna’ and the publication ‘so far’ with a special commissioned essay by art historian Cees de Boer (Amsterdam).

Beschrijving werk:

“My sculptures became more minimal by degrees to the point that since 2006 I have mainly been concerned with wall based sculptures executed in steel and aluminium. I want my sculptures to be entirely simple, to be viewed quickly, the focus is on the smooth and flat surface obtained by specialized industrial processes”.

In 2010 San Francisco based artist Brent Hallard conducts an interview about Cecilia’s work and the relation to the landscape for his blog ‘Visual Discrepancies’.
