Martina Steckholzer’s paintings offer a poetic ambience suggesting an infinite nothingness of space. Working from video footage filmed in art galleries, air fairs, studios, and museums, she isolates frames that capture the in-between spaces, unusual angles, and overlooked vantages of familiar generic places. Translated into paintings, these images become dislocated into virtual fields: flat canvases projecting abstracted illusions of line, shape, and tone replay the experience of gallery within the gallery, mirroring the hallowed white cube as sublime aesthetic.
