Cordy Ryman works in the border area between painting and sculpture. He builds his image carriers exclusively from found objects, everyday utility materials and building materials, preferably made of wood. ‘I love materials and keep everything. The fact that they carry their own story makes them even more interesting’, says Cordy. That’s why he likes to use the remnants of previous projects or ‘recycle’ old objects from his own studio. His work process is a continuous cycle of finding, producing, revising, disassembling and reassembling. Ryman works very spontaneously and reacts to form and materiality. He saws and paints a variety of ‘building blocks’ and merges them into vibrant, colorful objects and reliefs. In the current exhibition, the often small-format individual works form a large-scale installation. ‘Wait and see’ is Cordy Ryman’s second solo show at the Walter Storms Galerie.

The latest project of Czech artist Magdalena Jetelova (born 1946) ‘Pacific Ring of Fire’, as in her 1992 ‘Iceland Project’, revisits the theme of the natural, geological borders. At the point where the pacific plate meets several other continental plates, the Pacific Ring of Fire surrounds the pacific plate in a horseshoe shape with a volcanic belt. In Patagonia, Jetelova uses mathematical calculations to mark the plate boundary with a laser beam, as clear elevations are not visible due to the eternal ice. Messages like ‘Essential is visible’ were written with a laser pointer on the changing, partly collapsing icebergs. The drastic geological changes caused by climate change clearly resound in these photographic images presented in large-format light boxes.
