Full Description

Cécile Wick’s work – oscillating between photography, painting and drawing – ranks among the most important oeuvres in contemporary Swiss art. Amending photography by drawing or watercolour painting appears to be a logical continuation of her earlier work of prints and etchings. Cécile Wick. Colored Waters shows for the first time her recent watercolours, ink drawings, inkjet prints and photographs. The works are presented in series, putting media and motifs in a dialogue. Around 160 colour illustrations are complemented by a number of short essays by Nadine Olonetzky on aspects such as colour and light, traces, signs, bodies and buildings, nature, figures and nature, or rhythm, and by an introductory essay by Martin Jaeggi. Text in English & German.
