This event has ended.

Christian Vetter explores matters of the human condition in his practice, often using painting as a medium for this investigation. While questioning its continued relevance, Vetter remains dedicated to examining painting and its limitations, as well as its representational possibilities. The artist has painted exclusively in black and white since 2007, using a lack of color to emphasize both the abstraction and the structure of his work, a structure that reflects the artist’s own methods of thinking. Vetter’s works maintain a vitality and boldness in spite of his chosen color palette; this dynamism is a result of their strikingly graphic, architectural nature. The artist considers the act of painting to represent the transition of mind to matter. Thus, for Vetter, painting is highly communicative, expressing the ideas and meanings that he imbeds in the work.
