The first London solo exhibition by Irish artist Maser opened last week at Lazarides Rathbone. Orbiting On The Periphery features a new body of works in acrylic and latex paint on both canvas and wooden assemblage.
Upon arrival, viewers may be reminded of Maser's outdoor installations by the geometric vinyl accents on the windows and the "cut outs" of paint covering the gallery walls.
Inspired by American minimalism, Maser's geometric and anthropomorphic shapes seem to move on the artworks surface, encouraging the viewer to directly interact with them and with the surrounding space. The texture of the paint is varied by the addition of sand, thicker layers of colour are overlapped and varnish is applied in sections which contributes to highlight the artworks third dimension.
Orbiting On The Periphery is open Wednesday–Saturday, 11am–7pm and will run until Thursday 5th May 2016.
