art place berlin Shows the Exhibition “Before the Silence,” Abstract Paintings by Ivar Kaasik

“The exhibition by ‘art place berlin’ also shows Kaasiks latest works, the most radical abstractions within his oeuvre so far. In mostly large-scale oil paintings the notions of the artificial and the natural are blurring. They seem like a tribute to artists such as Joseph Albers and Mark Rothko, or the phenomenological light in the impressive works by James Turrell.” – Harald Hofbauer
