WITH MOIRÉE, WE INTEND TO BRING CONTEMPORARY ART CLOSER TO ITS AUDIENCE. WE CREATE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SPEND HOURS WITH A SINGLE PIECE OF ART BY ENJOYING THE MEDITATING WORK OF PUZZLING. MOIRÉE IS A CARDBOARD GALLERY FOR EVERYONE’S LIVINGROOM.
THE INITIAL MOMENTUM
It all began in our livingroom. We were puzzling for hours, drank wine...it was fun and relaxing at the same time. I knew every detail of the pictures I had put together. That's when I started to get bothered by the anonymous and uninspiring subjects. I asked myself what kind of image would I like to spend hour after hour with. I was looking at my art books and it became clear to me what to do. I took things in my own hands and created my vision of an inspiring puzzle which I shared with three of my favorite artists. This is how Moirée started.
Walter's art puts a smile on my face. He manages to perfectly balance beauty and humor in his pictures. I admire him for his positive nature and how he has asserted himself with his art against all conventions from an early stage in time. Shirana takes everyday things or situations and elevates them into unique spheres. Somehow her photography has the charisma of a painting. I find it amazing how eclectic her art is. Larissa, for me she‘s a sculptor with a camera, displaying the female body in a heroic yet sensitive fashion. I find it fascinating how she turned her back on a successful modeling career and decided to step behind the camera to create her own aesthetic. The three artists have different backgrounds, are from different generations and have completely different approaches to their work. This is what inspired us when we curated the first Edition of Moirée puzzles.
I very much hope that we can start soon with a second Edition. So far, Moirée was pure joy. We are full of ideas, how to further use this newly built canvas.
