Because we use paper ever since our childhood, we all think we know it by heart. How wrong! When we come across Angela Glajcar's Art, this ancient material free itself from its original servile rôle, to best emancipate.
Between minimal brutalism and exalted tearing, half painting half sculpture, Angela's work is anything but tame. The paper bursts between support and material, moon and light. Depth and relief merge in tortured craters where the "écorché" is sovereign. Between serenity and revolt, tear becomes queen, irregularity becomes perfection, and chance measures sovereign.
