Artificial Selection

4 August 2021

In Elize Vossgätter's "Artificial Selection", a body of work begun in Leipzig and finished in Cape Town, each canvas is coated in gentian violet, an artificial dye first produced in 1880 by German pharmacist George Grübler. The dye is mixed with rabbit skin glue to 'seal the pores' of the canvas. The violet undercoat is partly practical (the dye has anti-fungal properties), partly aesthetic (it provides an interesting colour base) but mostly ritualistic.
