Esther Stocker

Esther Stocker *1974 Silandro, IT, lives and works in Vienna, AT. Her work consists mainly of paintings and installations in an abstract and geometrical perspective. The installations are three dimensional projections of her paintings, exclusively made with a limited palette of black, grey and white. Her research focuses on vision and perception of space with a social and contemporary approach. The creation of her pieces is connected to a highly elaborated mathematical discourse. She poses the question: "How is a perfect system actually imperfect?". Her geometric structures are based upon eternally self-repeating modules that create a seemingly ordered visual rhythm, to which she adds aberrations in order to generate an adjacent but new rhythm. The introduction of deviation in the optical balance creates surprise and emotion through the disruption of order and plane dimension.
