We are excited that Frames and Stretchers got to frame Lorenzo Bernet's art show PARA VALLEY
at Hester Gallery, NYC. We built all white aluminum frames for the drawings covered by sheets of beautiful and textured stained glass. PARA VALLEY
presents a series of custom-made ropes that delineate the gallery space. Some ropes, running along handmade wooden pulleys, signal a capacity to work and be worked. This installation is accompanied by drawings adumbrating individuals and groups engaged in cycles of construction and production. Covered by sheets of stained glass in hues ranging from iridescent to incendiary – light bronzes and carmines to deep crimson – these chromatic determinations insinuate a fourth, temporal dimension, which, spanning from dawn till dusk, lends the drawings an indefinite actuality.
Lorenzo Bernet (b. 1986, Zürich; lives and works in Zürich).
