Frieze London: Mark Hagen
Hagen pushes black and white paint through lengths of rough burlap onto glass planes supporting sheets of wrinkled wrapping plastic and lengths of packaging tape, which are scored with geometric configurations to create gradients of grey. Once the paint has dried, the fabric is pulled from the textured surface, leaving a negative imprint.
The works are framed in prismatic, anodised titanium to heighten the chromatic richness of the gradated colour on both surfaces.
Hagen’s exhibition A Parliament of Some Things at the Almine Rech Gallery will run from October 13 to November 8 2014.
