About

Postmasters is pleased to announce Rafaël Rozendaal’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery. His most recent series of works are shadow objects of deceptive simplicity that fluctuate between an image and an object, a drawing and a sculpture. In what can be considered the shortest path from digital to physical, Rozendaal creates shapes which are coded to be cut by computer out of rectangular plates of white steel.

To Joseph Kosuth’s One and Three Chairs (1965) canonical trinity of language, picture, and referent, Rozendaal proposes a fourth element of meaning: the virtual. These are man-conceived, machine-made objects, where a line of code cuts a line in metal, becoming a line frozen in the material world, but also a void. This void, the negative of the shape, is activated by light; the shadow cast on the wall defines the image of an object that is not there.
Rozendaal’s new works mirror the digital realm, where drop-shadows lend the illusion of presence and form to immaterial, virtual objects. And where graphics software facilitates instant inversion, toggling between mask and background, object and absence. These contemplative voids and the shadow objects they create counter the cacophony and information overload of online life.
