Yoram Wolberger at Bentley Gallery

Yoram Wolberger is part of the exhibition Off the Wall, currently on view at Bentley Gallery in Phoenix, Arizona.

Breaking away from artistic conventions, the artists in Off the Wall explore the relationships between painting, sculpture, and architecture. In Off the Wall the relationship of work to wall and wall to floor is at the heart of the work, whether on paper or in metal or wood, straight-edged or curvilinear. Color and form are made to interact with both the wall and the space of the viewer. As Ellsworth Kelly explained to composer John Cage, he wanted his works, both paintings and sculpture, to hang where they “meet the eye – direct.

The exhibition also explores the interplay of positive and negative space. You can’t look at George Thiewes’ Points Points Points, for example, a black sculpture hung on a white wall, without considering the relationship of the sculpture’s form to its backdrop – the piece appears to slice the wall.
