Tanya Leighton is pleased to present a curated feature of newly finished works by a selection of the gallery’s artists.
These new and recent works, across a variety of medium and scale, would have been the foundation of the gallery’s presentation at Art Basel this June. In light of the event’s cancellation, we are proud to be sharing our artists’ unique perspectives with you in our first online Viewing Room.
We hope that this new platform provides an authentic experience for you to encounter and enjoy the works of many of our artists.
The prints are made using an incomplete set of type. Büchler had to mend and make do, and compose the phrases from available letters. This incomplete starting position calls for the efforts of a graphic and verbal contortionist… and the prints reveal what he managed to “stumble into” (a verb of his own choosing). The fact that the prints latch on so elegantly to some iconic references of our culture does more than attest to any artist’s skill.

Art is an exercise of speculative imagination without a real, immediate consequence. This is artistic freedom – the freedom to make nothing happen.
