In this presentation of paintings, Aglaé Bassens brings together figures, landscapes and interiors as she reflects upon the use of subjective imagery as a vehicle for collective emotion. Inspired by the turning of the seasons, the exhibition centers on the ultimate shared narrative: the passing of time. The Feeling Is Mutual exemplifies the enigmatic coexistence of intimacy and distance, familiarity and incongruity which lie at the heart of Bassens’ work. This marks Bassens’ third solo exhibition with the gallery.

Sonder: n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk. — John Koenig, The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows
