ASTA CAPLAN

Contemporary Perspectives
January 19 – February 9, 2016
Reception: Thursday, January 21, 2016 6-8 PM

Asta Caplan hovers with ease in the middle ground between drawing, painting and photography. Interested in the most delicate, intimate and immaterial of subjects, her work is ultimately about perception, the pleasure we take in looking and the profundity of visible beauty. Having grown up in a household where both parents were artists, her earliest works are nestled in the pages of her mother’s diary with her mother’s written explanations next to them. Caplan is also a former professional dancer and yoga instructor, and the vernacular of flow and bodily awareness certainly shines through in her compositions. Although fluent in several languages, in her visual work Caplan courts nonverbal communication. Grounding her work in the slow and the durable, the grounded and the sacred, her work strives toward the fulfillment of the human search for ideal beauty.

Artist Asta Caplan was born in Tampere, Finland and studied printmaking and painting at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts. Her work has been included in solo and group exhibitions in Japan and throughout Europe. She currently lives in Berlin, Germany.
