PAREIDOLIA: the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern. The human ability to see shapes or make pictures out of randomness. (Merriam-Webster Dictionary).
In this exhibition featuring photographs from Pascal Goet and Sculptures by Cat Sirot, Galerie l’Atelier showcases two artists who stimulate imagination through their research of shapes and patterns inspired from the world of nature. Here, the gallery presents their very personal universe that would remain invisible to our eye otherwise.
Pascal Goet is a French artist photographer, that devotes his art to magnifying life in all forms. He has particular predilection for the colorful, under-discovered world of minute geological detail. Goet takes this fascination to the microscope, searching for and capturing the innermost details of natural beauty. Pareidolia is a journey into the intimacy of matter, confronting the mind with visual enigmas that can forever change our perception of natures eternal wonder.
Cat Sirot is a French plastic artist with a focus on painting and sculpture. Her sculptural works explore the depths of love through a lens of sexuality and humor. Sirot’s keen eye for elegant lines and opulent curve creates sculpture that enthralls the eye and speaks to all audiences. In her pieces “First Kiss” and “Loving Pears”, beyond the fruit shapes, our mind imagines a human shape revealed.
Pascal Goet | Cat Sirot: Pareidolia will be on view from March 4 to April 10, 2021 at Galerie l’Atelier, 520 West 23rd Street, ground floor, under the High Line, NYC.
Pascal Goet and Cat Sirot appear through our collaboration with Galerie Hegoa, Paris, 16 rue de Beaune, Paris 7.
