omelette papier
15 January – 5 March 2022

omelette papier will open at the gallery with an extended selection of works on January 15, 2022. We look forward to welcoming you in person!

Paper has been a continuous complement to the vivid oil paintings which the pioneering Austrian artist Maria Lassnig is best known for, continuously accompanying her practice and taking on the vital role of providing an immediate and impulsive method of expressing her inner thoughts. The expression of subjective inner sensations of the body has been the center of Lassnig’s practice since the beginning of her career, coining the notion of Körpergefühlsmalerei, a now hugely influential concept which shaped the tradition of figuration through to our contemporary age.
