Nora Steiner (*1981, Zurich) is concerned with painting perceptual phenomena while making use of the basic principles of painting. Following recipes from the Renaissance she paints in thin, coloured layers using old master glaze techniques on a chalk base. At Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen, she is presenting a work cycle that she has worked on over the last five years. It is made up of large-format canvases that the artist slowly intensified with coloured glazes in technically elaborate processes. Starting from her interest in black holes, Nora Steiner approaches the unknown and the invisible in a painterly manner. The result is spectacular pictures that develop a strong spatial presence despite their simplicity. An artist's booklet was published on occasion of the exhibition. 

Nora Steiner (*1981, Zurich/CH) lives and works in Zurich. She studied Fine Arts at the Zurich University of the Arts (2003-2007), where she also graduated with a Master of Arts in Fine Arts (2013-2016). Solo exhibitions (selection): Sollbruchstelle 03, Zurich (2015); message salon, Perla Mode, Zurich (2013). Group exhibitions (selection): Museum Bärengasse, Zurich (2014), Cité des Arts, Paris, Zementfabrik Areal, Brunnen; Dienstgebäude, Zurich (2012); Freiraum Quartier 21 International, Vienna (with Küng- Caputo) (2011); Löwenbräu-Areal Zurich (2010).
