The Austrian artist fills Abreu's original space, and inaugurates its second on Eldridge Street, with austere white panels featuring linear motifs that curve, bend or intersect one another. The panels themselves are made of ceramic plaster, a material usually employed to create molds for slip-casting pottery. The lines are imprinted in oil paint using custom rubber stamps and are derived from two sources: the Georgian alphabet and a 19th-century rabbinical map of Israel. It's a lot of backstory for works that are so reductively formal, but their elegance is hard to deny.
