Liquid Light

Just like the changing light from morning to nightfall of any day, the Liquid Light works change with the viewer’s movements, each one opening and closing like the pupil of an eye. Every degree of movement reveals yet another image where the game between artwork and viewer endlessly unfolds.

Full Circle

Karen Woodbury Gallery writes: “Full Circle Red harks back to works of the early 2000’s where the artist explored the play of light and refraction, often using a bright red that would cast faint rose-coloured shadows onto the host wall. Assembled in a grid each of the 16 pieces in this new work has its …

Lunar

The moon has a powerful allure, brimming with beauty, legend and myth. Its constant presence reminds us of the heavenly bodies beyond our own planet, the vastness of our solar system and the timeless nature of the world we live in. As it orbits the earth, the moon seemingly changes appearance due to its position …

Tsukimi Series (Glass)

Venetian Tsukimi is an arresting, complex piece, intriguing for its originality and mystery. It comprises of sixteen Murano glass spheres, progressing from pure crystal to solid black and representing the phases of the moon. The full grandeur of the spheres is revealed on repeated viewing, with the layers of silver leaf and crystal gradually revealing …

2016 Our Turning World

EXHIBITION: Karen Woodbury Gallery, 15/09/2016 to 08/10/2016

Borgelt’s works of art are illusive and hypnotic through the play on refraction, light, pattern and the optical. Via an almost cosmological collision of particles on canvas or in sculptural form – Borgelt’s works draw the viewer into the frame.

The circle is primary. Borgelt treats the circle as a medium in and of itself. The current exhibition including Tsukimi with Rings: Variation No. 3 proposes an evolution of change, a march from one whole to another. The Lunar Arc, with the example here of Lunar Arc: Gold Eclipse No 1, is a study of shifting paradigms, a life cycle of sorts. The Tsukimi Whorl series, (featuring numbers 22 & 23) presents us with an entire cosmological possibility, settled on a golden precipice, caught in a time-freeze, adorned with egg shell and veiny timber. Full Circle Black/Gold No 2 is entropy. Lunar Wave: No 1 is a pulsing, rhythmic, celestial serpentine form demonstrating the utter dichotomy of Marion Borgelt’s art practice. Light and shade, black and white (silver), angles and curves, layer and layer.Marion Borgelt’s practice is as diverse as it is dichotomous. There is play inherent on every surface and every angle; plays on light, time, balance, viewership.Much like the grand Romanticisms of Caspar David Friedrich, or Barnett Newman, simplistic forms belie suggestions of grandeur and cosmic awareness. To Borgelt time is an inconstant, a linear circle with no beginning and no end.
