Imi Knoebel (Germany 1940)
Initially focused on light projections, and pure white paintings. By 1974 he softened his reductionist position through the addition of colour. Knoebel’s artworks depict an explosion of different tints that are uniquely disciplined and presented in a manner that is highly geometric.
Ruth Root (USA 1967)
Her paintings are primarily hard-edge abstractions, consisting of rectangles and other simple shapes in a limited brightly colored palate. In paintings from the early 2000s, eyes or a cigarette was added to these otherwise abstract canvases.
In this exhibition the work of these two artists, who although of different nationalities and generations, they show an artistic research with many points of contact that Galleria Six compares through an essential exhibition layout.
