BASEL.- Von Bartha announces representation of Swiss artists Olaf Breuning and Athene Galiciadis in Switzerland. Von Bartha will present a solo exhibition of work by Olaf Breuning at its S-chanf space this Spring, 27 March – 29 May 2021. Additionally, the gallery will present a solo exhibition of work by Athene Galiciadis at its Basel space from 12 November – 23 December 2021.

Stefan von Bartha, Director said: "Having closely followed the practice of Olaf Breuning and Athene Galiciadis, we are thrilled for these artists to join the von Bartha roster. I am convinced that Olaf Breuning is going to be one of the most significant rediscoveries within the Swiss art scene in the coming years. His new body of work, the woodcut paintings, have opened an entirely new chapter within his work and we are looking forward to presenting it to our Swiss audience. Athene Galiciadis' unique style oscillates between geometric precision and freehandedness, and regardless of the medium she depicts current themes in a truly poetic manner. The planning for her solo show in November is well on the way and we are very excited about her new body of work."

Swiss multi-disciplinary artist Olaf Breuning lives and works in Upstate New York and works across the media of performance, photography, film, sculpture, and drawing. The artist is known for his characteristic sense of humour and work which reflects on human experience as well as cultural and political issues. Breuning’s diverse practice introduces viewers to absurd and humorous worlds, using an intentionally simple visual vocabulary to address a range of human concerns. Artworks investigate cliché and popular culture, using pastiche and drawing on figures from high and low culture. Breuning‘s work crystalises particular themes, allowing viewers to reflect on both the range of human experience and the commonalities we share.

Zurich-based artist Athene Galiciadisis known for her work featuring geometric and organic forms which echo the characteristics of concrete art and its precursor, Constructivism. Working across painting, drawing, sculpture and installation, works by Galiciadis are characterised by their vibrant colour palette and repertoire of forms. The artist employs various materials such as ceramics and plexi-glassto assemble her work and develops her own formal language that invokes associations with tradition, craft, and design. Galiciadis’ practice commonly explores the themes of theory, science and pattern as well as spirituality. Her work can oscillate between organic fluidity and geometric control.
