Tashi Brauen: Hold On to That Paper Again | In collaboration with the SAC Gallery Bangkok

8 April - 22 May 2021

Tashi Brauen’s interest lies in observing the characteristics of objects in relation to people and everyday materials. He combines amorphous structures with geometrical forms: "I am interested in working with common materials and transforming them into a new form. It’s an attempt to give a new view on different contemporary materials and shapes which are surrounding us."

At the heart of Brauen’s practice is a study about materials and their surfaces reacting with different interventions: "When I use a new material it’s always an experiment. I start with bending and folding the new material, observing its characteristics. At the end my intention is to keep the interventions to a minimum."

    Tashi Brauen – Hold on to That Paper Again

    Ronewa Art Projects | SAC Gallery

     

    April 22, 2021

     

    SAC Gallery and Ronewa Art Projects present Hold on to That Paper Again, an exhibition of recent works by Swiss-Tibetan artist Tashi Brauen. Opening on April 8, 2021, the solo show brings together two series of works on paper, united by Brauen’s mark-making interventions that master a fine balance between intentional actions and spontaneous forms. 

     

    Brauen engages his everyday materials in a back and forth conversation, testing their response to his subtle manipulations. His sculptural approach to paper interrogates the physical quality of its surface and structure. For his Cracks series, Brauen paints vibrant color fields that become intersected with the textured lines of the paper’s broken surface as he bends and folds it.

    Brauen discusses the origins and different processes of the two series of works on show, which both employ unique mark-marking methods that balance intention and coincidence.
