Gagosian Artist Spotlight

Sarah Sze

In painting, the world spills into the frame, and sometimes we confuse that frame with the world

Gagosian Artist Spotlight:

One Artist, One Work, One Week

 

As arts institutions worldwide temporarily close their doors to support efforts to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, exhibitions everywhere are being canceled, postponed, or curtailed. For artists who have invested time, energy, and resources preparing shows now directly affected by the health crisis, Gagosian is launching Artist Spotlighta new, multifaceted program that invites individual artists to use the gallery’s online channels as an open platform, to present their work to the world and continue generating support for their studios.

 

Each week, Gagosian will be unveiling a rich weave of editorial features every Wednesday—including videos, interviews, essays, artists’ playlists, and more—providing insights into artistic practice and process, inspirations and influences. Each Friday at 6am edt, the gallery will present a single artwork exclusively online page, making it available with pricing information for forty-eight hours only.

 

SARAH SZE

 

In this film, the artist speaks about her most recent work, including the panel painting Picture Perfect (Times Zero) and the multimedia installation Plein Air (Times Zero) (both 2020). Discussing the relationship between painting and sculpture in her practice, she explains how she creates structure and its inverse, instability, in her layering of images, putting the viewer in the position of active discovery.
