At A Gallery Named Sue is a good presentation of works by Astrid Nobel and Miranda Meijer.

Nobel reflects on a combination of aspects like hiding or mythologizing reality, in this case the wood in this construction, is real, but only under its cover of gesso and ink.

Nobel’s other piece is called Lacus somniorum (Lake of Dreams), which is one of the so-called seas on the Moon. It more or less has the shape of the Lacus and consists of ink drawn waves.

But it is not just a set of connotations that make this work: the open parts of the flaking frame combined with the irregular mass of waves that can’t flow away have a charm of their own.

Nobel’s work combines surprisingly well with Meijer’s (colour) pencil drawings.

Meijer leaves any connotations to the spectator, but, like Nobel, she shows that she is the artist who is in power to speak to the spectator’s mind.
