Galerie Pugliese Levi is pleased to present the first solo show in Berlin by British artist Shawn Stipling.

At first glance the paintings of Shawn Stipling appear almost machine made, the precision of the lines and seemingly industrial surfaces belie their intensely hand made production. But looking more closely, beyond these initial impressions, we start to see that all is not as we first thought. The measurements are ‘off’ – more random than mathematical, elements are sometimes slightly skewed, lines do not meet edges where we somehow feel they should. We are being asked to look more closely, to slow down, to step forward, and in doing so, we begin to see the true identity of these works emerge.

You and your friends are kindly invited to attend the opening in the presence of the artist on Friday, January 10, at 18:00.
