Veronika Maser achieves a variety of subtle optical effects across this series of large woven wire sculptures. While previous works use rectangular shapes and linear perspective to create the illusion of space, her current works contain and subdivide space within a plump quatrefoil form, a shape Maser describes as balanced and comfortable. Quatrefoil designs have appeared in art and architecture across a range of cultures since ancient times, now overtaking their art historical connotations to inform the shapes of cookie cutters, crockery, cushions and the like.

The everyday familial environment is an important influence on Maser’s work and she finds comfort in domestic activities like knitting and crochet. Although she does not knit and crochet in wire, there are elements of this craft in her works; built patiently row upon row until a completed arrangement emerges. In some works, a playful scattering of colour is added with wool woven in to the wire. Each work has a sense of volume and weight which is beautifully contradicted by its loose, lacy construction and a constant play of shadow and light that makes it impossible to fix.
