Foley Gallery is pleased to present Mid Winter Kingdom, a window installation featuring sculptures, paper works and graphite drawings by Cologne based artist Simon Schubert.

 

Inspired and influenced by literature and architecture, the window installation features work related to the writings of Edgar Allan Poe and Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.”

 

Works created for the installation do not intend to be precise illustrations as much as they are a reflection of the tales and dark views of these historic writings. The interiors are rendered in graphite as if seen by night. The interiors, both meditative and haunting in white folded paper, embrace an exquisite elegance, while channeling dark creepiness.


The style of Schubert’s interiors remain influenced by 19th Century Danish painter, Vilhelm Hammershoi, who employed low-key tones of grays to create a somber interior environment.

 

Schubert lives and works in Cologne, Germany. From 1997 to 2004 he trained at the Kunstakademie Dusseldorf in the sculpture class of Irmin Kamp. The grand interiors he depicts are realistic yet illusory, and reflect notions of isolation, loneliness, and loss.

Mid Winter Kingdom is on view through February 10th, 2019. Foley Gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday, 11 – 5:30pm and Sunday from 12-5pm. To request images; please contact the gallery at info@foleygallery.com.
