Artblog review: "Subtle Geometry – Katrin Bremermann at Gallery Joe"

Michael Lieberman writes: "Bremermann treats paper as a sculptural element. Her drawings become objects. She actually works both sides of the paper, leaving behind traces, lines, and marks, and she waxes the paper, creating transparency. The backgrounds of the pieces have an etched quality and the subtle, smooth hue and texture of natural concrete or marble floors. The contrast between the background and the applied enamel is stark but harmonious, a reflection of the artist’s interest in opposites. The overall effect achieved I would call stately delight."

Review of New Space, New Work on the Artblog

From Rachel Sitkin's review: "In 1993, Gallery Joe opened it doors in a rented space at 302 South Arch St. in Old City. For 22 years, gallery owner Rebecca “Becky” Kerlin gained an unimpeachable reputation for presenting work of the highest caliber, primarily contemporary drawing and works on paper, by Philadelphia-based artists and a carefully curated selection of international artists. Over the years, she has honed her mission: to provide Philadelphia artists an opportunity to exhibit their work in context with a broad range of international artists, and to show work that isn’t otherwise seen in Philadelphia."
