To start the new year, Galerie Thomas Schulte presents the installation BLANK by Angela de la Cruz. In her work, the artist puts the traditional concepts and the very structure of painting to the test. In the gallery's Corner Space, which is visible from the street, de la Cruz stages a selection of nearly monochromatic white toned objects and wall-based works. With her display of white and off-white shapes and surfaces, the artist suggests a fresh start to 2021: visitors may regard the purist works as a means of purification and as a starting point for further associations: "Art is very important and more important than ever to give people a sense of perspective. It is really very important. It can also be a relief from the world."
