Dirk Stewen - PAPER MOONS

Wed-Sun: 11-6pm

Maureen Paley is pleased to announce PAPER MOONS by Dirk Stewen. This will be his third solo exhibition at the gallery and his first presented at Studio M.

Dirk Stewen’s work combines photography, sculpture, drawing and painting. Photographs from his own archive are incorporated into his works on paper and combined with overlapping materials, surfaces and mark-making to create a series of layered and subtle works.

’It only takes a second and next to nothing to create a picture – if you trust the unpredictable. But when things happen pretty fast the desire for control will also grow. In my work I try to make these elements compete with each other – it stimulates the mind. By translating images into very different surfaces I am trying to find a place of openness and balance and that place is also full of secrets.’
