Karine Leger, ‘Suspended Snow’, Exhibit by Aberson

Karine Léger's approach first involves the need to deconstruct in order to lay the foundations for an introspective reconstruction. In the studio, bits of torn and cut-up paper and photographs form a growing pile on the work table. Individual pieces from the pile will be meticulously selected for colour, texture and shape, to be arranged and rearranged, assembled and reassembled, in a quest for the right balance. Each of her paintings consists of simple clean lines and a restricted palette.

Through the simplicity of her structures and the clarity of the forms, her paintings suggest a skyline or a geometric terrain. There are places where the line becomes mountain, where the gesture evokes the tide, a breath of time passing. The layers and monochrome touches add a profoundly moving dimension to these pieces.

The work of Karine Léger is a pretext for a meeting of shapes and shades which seem to emerge from a hidden light source. It creates a contemplative space for the viewer to lose – or indeed find – themselves for a moment.
