Josepha Gasch-Muche - Germany / Sculpture

About the Artist

German artist Josepha Gasch-Muche studied painting and drawing at Academy of Fine Arts in Trier, Germany. Early on she absorbed the teaching of her professor and Bauhaus member, Boris Kleint, a student himself of the school’s core teacher and theorist, Johannes Itten. The Bauhaus explorations of the essential “materiality” of substances have had a clear influence on Gasch-Muche’s work. She originally experimented with other materials, but in 1998 started working with very thin, industrial liquid crystal display glass. Breaking it into shards, she arranges them, by the thousands, into simple geometric forms, which simultaneously reflect and absorb light.
