Zelene Jiang Schlosberg
canvas, acrylic, thread
20x20x1.5 inches/51x51x3.8 cm
This is a unique "cut out" wall sculpture piece consisting of 2 panels of canvas.
Zelene Jiang Schlosberg cuts, paints, stacks and positions canvases to create hybrid works that dangle precipitously between painting and sculpture, with attention to line and architecture always present. The works adumbrate a labyrinthine narrative of abstract, figurative, and mystical configurations, set in a world both familiar and uncanny. Between the tension and illusion of real and unreal, the canvas feels reminiscent of memories, of yearning and loss.
The idea of stacking, juxtaposing, and layering responds to Jiang Schlosberg’s intense study of Old Master paintings, including triptychs, as well as the Eastern influence of Chinese ink paintings.
