An Acrylic Glass Pyramid and Three Pendulums Attached to a Triangle on a Table
Never loving the static presentation of art found in the common exhibition catalog, Swiss contemporary artist Athene Galiciadis (b. 1978) chose to show her work in a way that allows the art to lead the viewer as opposed to the essay or curators leading the viewer. In An Acrylic Glass Pyramid and Three Pendulums Attached to a Triangle on a Table, a timeline of the artist’s work and of those who inspired her have been created. Featured are works printed on graph paper of figures, spirals, patterns, vases, and a self-portrait, as well as photographic documents inspired by an early twentieth-century Swiss artist, healer, and visionary, Emma Kunz, known for her geometrical drawings made on graph paper with the aid of a pendulum. Based on Kunz’s precise empirical approach to producing knowledge and art, Galiciadis has created this new series of monochromatic colored pencil drawings, whose configurations of shape and pattern draw us into her perceptions and interpretation of the world.

John Golding (1929–2012) is a British artist, scholar, and curator of Modern Art, who is best known for his seminal publication Cubism: A History and an Analysis 1907–1914, which was first published in 1959. Although he has been long recognized for his curatorial and academic achievements, he considered himself primarily a painter. Over sixty years, Golding exhibited extensively both in the UK and internationally alongside fellow British artists Bridget Riley, John Hoyland, Frank Auerbach, Peter Blake, and David Hockney, besides being included in the historically noted group exhibitions British Painting 74 at Hayward Gallery and British Painting 1952–77 at the Royal Academy of Arts. Golding’s minimal abstract paintings of vertical streaks never strayed from his fascination with the play of color and light in life. In this elegantly produced monograph, the painter’s long and rich career is finally documented, allowing his paintings to once again be appreciated and reconsidered.
