A Forgotten Maverick — Marlow Moss

9 February 2017 - 7 May 2017

| CHF16

The British artist Marlow Moss (born 1889 in Kilburn, London, died 1958 in Penzance, Cornwall) is one of the few representatives of constructive art of the first hour. In 1919 Marjorie Jewel, a rebel against traditional art and gender, took her female baptism name Marjorie Jewel and called Marlow, she cut her hair short, and began to wear riding trousers and shirt. Her art is inspired by Piet Mondrian’s neoplasticism, which she expands in relief and sculptures. One of their most important inventions is the so-called double line, a dynamic compositional element consisting of two thin, parallel lines, which she first began painting in 1930. Mondrian uses this element for his own compositions, but without referring to Moss as the author. The exhibition would like to draw attention to the oeuvre of Marlow Moss, which stood too long in the shadow of the famous male constructivists, and to stimulate its deeper artistic history.
