The Slovenian artist Miha Strukelj is drawn to the ambiguous nature and confines of space. Space is understood by the artist as both the physical space of the canvas - or other support medium - as well as geographical space. Exploring the process of creating a painting or drawing, he leaves empty patches and shows underlying content. This has led him to experiment with how painting and drawing function in physical space, resulting in the construction of large-scale installations. Focusing on urban landscapes, he creates a new sense of place by combining different real or fictitious elements, or by abstracting real topologies.
A trained painter, he begins each work from a painter's perspective: with a grid, the most underlying element of paintings and drawings. By exposing different elements of the work process - the grid, preliminary sketches, the under painting, and even the untouched canvas itself Strukelj creates a complex heterogeneous 'organism'. In paintings, exposed elements and blank fields have the effect of interruptions and distortions, while re-enforcing the materiality of the painting itself. Thus, the viewer's perception and concept of painting is challenged. At the same time, Strukelj's technique underlines the fragility inherent to all of his work, which allows the spectator to go beyond grid and fragments, to explore the scenes and motives depicted.
