Claudia Larissa Artz has just returned from a two month artist residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris. During this time, Artz completed a series of ink drawings on paper, les dessins de Paris (drawings of Paris).
Paris is renowned for its rich cultural heritage and abundant exhibitions. Countless artists from around the world have flocked to Paris seeking inspiration and stimulation. Artz, however, chose to restrict her artmaking to the barest minimum: ink, paper, brush and feather.
She says: "I went to Paris 'empty' so that during the time I was going to be there, I could develop something new. This self-imposed restriction, which initially appeared to be self-limiting, became over time a concentration and focus on the essential."
Claudia Larissa Artz will be exhibiting with us in February 2017, and we look forward to seeing in which direction this new focus takes her work.
