Marianne Vierø / GLYPH

Comprised of prints and modular wall-like structures Glyph morphs a variety of
media  and  methods  to  test  their  defining  elements  as  rendered  through  the
employment  of various digitized and real  life brushes.  Made in an analogue
color darkroom the prints are done on photographic C-paper and build up from
multiple exposures of filtered light. They combine projected images of exported
Photoshop files with traditional photogram techniques where objects are placed
directly on the surface of the paper. Although the prints are highly layered the
photographic paper leaves them absolutely flat and conceals the choreography of
their production. The flatness of the prints is contrasted with the lushness of the
textures applied to the wall-like structures. Distributed throughout the space and
worked over with a solution of pigments and plaster the structures record the
syntax of every movement employed. 

Marianne Vierø studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and has been a resident at
