STATEMENT:
Maria Torp focuses on the collision between different spaces and perspectives in a series of paintings and kaleidoscopic collages. Here the confines and frames of the pictorial space are explored and accentuated by pressing different angles and positions into the picture plane. In this way she visualises the experience of seeing a room or a situation through the mirror image of a glass facade.
