BEYOND WORDS
MARTIN BIALAS

JULES MAEGHT GALLERY
149 Gough St. San Francisco CA 94102

January 10 to February 2, 2019
Opening Reception: January 10th, 6 to 9 pm

Jules Maeght Gallery is pleased to present Beyond Words, a solo exhibition of sculptures in bronze by the Franco-German artist Martin Bialas, curated by Alexandra Ray. Martin Bialas has since his early works been using language and imagery to show his influence from both the physical parameters all of us live in, as well as the space that links us to our intuitive or cognitive thought-processes and perceptions. His personal research has led him to extensive Sahara travels, face to face with nature’s bare essentials, shaping his work as much as his philosophical explorations.

Beyond Words examines the evolution of Bialas’ celebrated Déluge installations, and marks the first integration of the human form in his sculptural work. Working almost exclusively in bronze, Bialas’ sculpture and installations are a form of visual poetry almost like drawing with molten metal. His pieces are often made up of small, individually cast elements that he fluidly assembles. Whether meant to be wall hung or freestanding, the work appears light and airy- filling spaces like falling leaves or words in speech.
