Cornelia Thomsen - Stripes and Structures II -

My recent paintings combine surface precision, tonal variation, and rhythmic pattern to build compositions that resonate with the viewer's consciousness. By creating works that respond to our physical environment, seamlessly integrating elements of light and space, I aim to evoke, rather than represent, my personal experience of the natural world.-  Cornelia Thomsen, 2018

"Stripes and Structures II" is an exhibition of work by New York-based German artist Cornelia Thomsen.
