The gallery will be closed: opening: Saturday, November 9th., 4-7 p.m.

"Collages and line drawings, their combinations and their numerous variations are elements that interest me.
By drawing I explore my own concentration and the relation between the texture of the paper and the drawing".

The first gallery solo exhibition is a very special unique moment in the professional career of every artist.

We are therefore especially looking forward to the first solo exhibition with collages and drawings by Sebastijan Zupancic.

After researching the relationship between line and sheet space, mostly on large papers (200 x 150 cm), Zupancic has exclusively dealt with the small format in the last two years.

In 2018, Zupancic produced the first A4-sized line drawings and collages, in which he used pencil and scalpel as equivalent means of design on brown-toned paper, some of which had several layers. Depending on the incidence of light, cuts in the paper appear as lines as well as those he draws with a pencil. We show, among other things, a four-part group from this period with various combinations of horizontal and radiating lines and cuts.

Zupancic began to cut white papers into thin stripes and use these to glue fine geometric reliefs onto white papers. He covers the resulting collages with ink lines. In the process, he creates series of sheets in which he either sets the lines at right angles to the collaged stripes or tries to draw along their degrees.

In 2019, he begins a group of A3 large hard white collages covering the finest grid of pencil lines. They form the twelve drawings that he presented for the first time this summer in Leipzig as part of his diploma examination.

Sebastijan Zupancic was born in 1993 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. He discovered his passion for drawing early on. After his first studies in Slovenia, he took part in study semesters in the Netherlands and Austria as part of an Erasmus scholarship 2015-2016. From 2016 he began studying at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig in the classes of Ingo Meller and Michael Riedel. In the summer of this year he received his diploma there with distinction and was accepted into the master class of Michael Riedel.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue.
