“As an artist, I have an inner yearning to gain new insights. This implies the non-understanding and non-recognition of the world: At first sight, I can’t recognize the process; I can see connections often only with distance. My process is a relationship with time and geography which I compare to a zoom lens, navigating from the macro structure then zooming out to reach the micro view”.
Gassmann creates process-oriented paintings, objects and installations which operate on similar principles as when shapes, colours, and materials interact with each other. Her works can be related to poems or music covering a wide range of sounds from “subtle, loud and disturbing dissonances to reflective moods and daytime light situations.”
Support: Sara Gassmann's residency is made possible with support from Atelier Mondial Basel (Christoph Merian Stiftung Basel) .
