Matthias Groebel has been producing machine-assisted paintings since the late 1980s, continuously refining and improving this technology. Assembled from scrap metal, one could visualise the machine as a kind of airbrush attached to a plotter, moving in layers across a canvas providing precise control over the application of acrylic paint. His new show at Gathering comprises works produced between 2003 and 2006.

Until 21 April 2024
