4 COLORS is Yves Zurstrassen’s extended solo show featuring oil on canvases and a new series of tapestries in both spaces of the gallery. In this part of the exhibition, the presentation of the abstract paintings is constructed as a colorful mise en scène. Vermilion, blue, yellow, black and white enter into a distant dialogue and the works seem to speak to the other by reflecting similar color. The works use the viewer as a medium for transmission. On closer inspection, the works reveal precise details. The complex construction between the abstract shapes and lines that intertwine on a monochrome background produces a real game of pleasant visual illusions.
