Artist biography

Maurer’s rigorous conceptual practice, which encompasses painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and filmmaking, is rooted in a sense of movement and indeterminacy. Focusing on the grammar of geometrical forms and using systematic analyses and mathematical methodologies, her approach can alternate between process-based experiment and formal investigations of rule-based compositional logic. Originally trained as a graphic artist during the late 1950s, traces of the printmaking process – its methods of distortion, duplication and reversal – are evident in her paintings. This idea of ‘shifting’ is manifest through the repetition of singular forms, displacement, transformation whilst exploring the potential for colour to influence spatial perception. As Maurer says: ‘[...] my whole way of thinking comes less from painting; my approach is much more influenced by my long years of conceptual and conceptional activity.’
