Woodbury School of Architecture’s Wedge Gallery will present Hans Koesters’s Perfume Masses: Ambient Objects and Lingering Lines on January 19th.
Hans Koesters is an artist and designer based in Los Angeles. He currently works in the architecture office of Oyler Wu Collaborative and the experimental wearable art label, LACE by Jenny Wu. His work involves drawings and paintings that act as artifacts of conceptual and perceptual ideas situated between art and architecture. His recent work explores the layering of figural relationships and implied objects through tension and disequilibrium. The combination of drawing and painting seeks to emphasize volumetric associations, weight, and gesture using precarious compositions and deviations between the two mediums. His work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, St. Louis, Cincinnati, Louisville, Lexington, and Seoul.
About Wedge Gallery
Residing in a sliver of the School of Architecture on the Woodbury campus, the Wedge Gallery is the exhibition venue for the Los Angeles location. The small gallery space presents multiple shows per semester, each fitting into an overarching theme. The space exhibits student work, giving students the opportunity to learn from their classmates’ drawings and models, as well as work by invited architects, artists, and faculty members. Exhibits usually include a workshop or discussion component to create a more robust exchange between the exhibitors and participants. Wedge Gallery is typically open while classes are in session, during the Fall and Spring semesters.
