Counting sheep with Esther Stocker
Relaxation workshop for adults inspired by works of an Austrian conceptual artist Esther Stocker.
Esther Stocker (1974)
26th May – 15th July 2016
An Austrian artist of Italian descent Esther Stocker studied in Vienna, Milan, and Pasadena (USA). Her art production – paintings, objects, installations, videos, photos and architectural works comes from geometrical abstraction. She puts geometrical order founded on regular structure and principle of randomness based on distorting this structure into opposition. These contrasts create special tension in her works.
