TRUTH THAT, Paul Wallach | BASTIAN Gallery, Mayfair | 18th March – 30th April
Following acclaimed solo exhibitions across Europe, contemporary sculpture artist Paul Wallach is making his UK debut at Mayfair’s BASTIAN Gallery in an intimate exhibition of new wall mounted sculptures, TRUTH THAT. Wallach’s engaging and poetic works are defined by his use of the space around the sculptures as much as the materials themselves. Precariously balanced shapes on the point of tipping explore time, mass and gravity. As the artist puts it, ‘if a question is easy to answer then there’s no point in asking’.
