Evi Vingerling

Distilling a Few Words

Evi Vingerling makes paintings and wall paintings that refer to the often overlooked visual system of the world around her. By combining her affinity for mathematical forms, the transcendentalism of Emerson and her personal memories (these form the parameters of her work) she creates sharp geometrical arrangements on her canvases.

Vingerling takes forms from the world around her which she then separates from their literal meaning. She plays with movement and distills the forms of symbolism, leaving in the end only recurring patterns and directional lines washed with thin layers of colour. In an attempt to get to the bottom of where form and inherent knowledge meet, she creates a tangible space that meets the viewer with a direct sensitive statement of proof of how she thinks the world could be if systems of linear meaning were eradicated. At Ellen de Bruijne Projects, the artist will present new work, consisting of wall paintings as well as wall-covering canvases. All together it creates a complete installation.

Evi Vingerling was educated at the Royal Academy for Visual Arts in The Hague (1998-2002) and at the Rijksacademy in Amsterdam (2005-2006). In 2006 she received the Buning Brongersprize for painting, in 2008 she was nominated for the Wolvecampprize. Recent exhibitions are ‘Parts’ in Xiamin, China; “l’Exposition Continué”, in Circuit in Lausanne; and two gallery exhibitions in New York: Kate Werble gallery and “I Love Benelux”, at Virgil de Voldere.
