Station: [42] Paul Wallach, Ring-Around, 1999

  • Paul Wallach, Ring-Around, 1999

Paul Wallach (b.1960 in New York), who lives in Paris, is largely known for small abstract sculptures made from fragile materials such as plaster, rusty metal or driftwood, which are never placed free-standing in open spaces, but against walls or in places rarely used to display works of art, such as the corners of rooms. The sculpture and its location creates an "interspace" - and together they form a coherent entity. This always creates a delicate mutual relationship, which the viewer is drawn into as a partner for further dialogue. In this way the basic Minimalism of the sculptures takes on a human dimension.
