The Paolo Curti/Annamaria Gambuzzi & Co gallery presents, on Tues 7
Oct at 18.00, the opening of the show by the german artist Torben
Torben Giehler belongs to a new generation of artists who explore,
in different ways, the various intersections of physical nature,
technology and psychology in the new millennium. He designs
abstract landscapes using digital media and traditional methods.
Starting with freehand drawing, after scanning and computer
manipulation of the image Giehler creates works with the look of
dazzling cybernetic paintings, as in a warm videogame, a
multicolored sheet involving a modernistic exploration of form and
space using colored adhesive tapes.
His canvases with grids of bright colors that seem to respond to
mathematically precise rules can be interpreted as virtual
landscapes or as geometric abstraction.
Born in 1973, Torben Giehler lives and works in New York. He
graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts of Boston. He
is a recipient of the James William Paige Fund and the Clarissa
His works have been shown in many American and European galleries,
and included in the exhibition Painting Pictures at the Wolfsburg
Museum. He recently had a solo show at the Museum of Contemporary
Art of Salamanca, Spain.
His works are included in the collections of the Hirschorn Museum
in Washington, the Dakis Janou collection in Athens, the Wolfsburg
Museum and the Kunsthaus of Zurich.
