Over a career spanning more than three decades, Cecilia Vissers has experimented widely with abstract and conceptual art practices. Working variously in metal sculpture, photography and printing techniques, Vissers' art references to the wild landscapes of Ireland and Scotland. Her employment of industrial materials and techniques, as well as her overarching approach to her art practice, have precedents in constructivism and minimalism. In 1998 Vissers made 'Curve No 1' which serves as a template for all her future work. Many subsequent works have been inspired by its proportions.
Vissers was a 2009 and 2014 Heinrich Boell Foundation resident fellow. She's a Brabant Art Foundation Grant recipient. Furthermore, she received stipends from the Dutch Embassy in New York and The Netherland-America Foundation in New York.
Vissers has exhibited her work worldwide since the mid-nineties.
A gallery in Marfa TX focussing on art by Chinati Foundation related artists and minimalist and reductive artists. Inventory includes prints by Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, Roni Horn, Richard Long, John Chamberlain, Richard Serra, Vija Celmins, Lee Ufan and others.
The new gallery was designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune of Stockholm, Sweden. The concept of the design involves elongation of the exterior perspective, making the 115' long building feel longer. The interior, divided into a gallery, inner courtyard and residence, includes floating walls, etc. This is the first building by Claesson Koivisto Rune building built in the U.S.
