Presenting an Outstanding otherworldly image from Cassini and Zycles, German artist Thomas Ruff’s exhibition of new work, currently on view at the Excellent David Zwiner Gallery in New York (the photographer’s sixth solo show in the space). Via Wallpaper via Zwirner press release: ” The Cassini series was influenced by a selection of images found on NASA‘s public website. The result of a four-year space programme on the part of NASA, exploring Saturn and its outer rings, Ruff has transformed the raw black-and-white prints with interjections of saturated colour. Similarly rooted in science, the Zycles series has a more abstract edge. A filigree of curves, modelled around screenshots of electromagnetic fields and ‘cycloids’ – apparently regarded as the most aesthetic of curves, in mathematical circles – the images highlight how, in the words of the gallery, ‘structures become more complex as you examine their details.” Prices upon request.
