BRUSSELS.- Maruani Mercier is now presenting the first solo exhibition of Paul Mogensen at their Brussels gallery, with works made between 2016 and 2022 that follow the eponymous mathematical algorithm (n+1) utilized throughout the artist’s oeuvre. He determines the height, width, and placement of squares through elemental mathematics, particularly those deriving from Renaissance and Ancient Egyptian theorems.

Although working spontaneously, Mogensen nevertheless operates within a set of parameters: hard edges, a minimal palette, and predetermined logic. He never plans his works on paper, electing instead to compose directly on the canvas, explaining that “once you decide on the arithmetic and then you just make it, [the work] makes itself.” From this imperative, he has sustained decades of experimentation. In Mogensen’s practice, the ever-advancing, ever-diminishing progressional sequences of arithmetic and geometry are laid bare. Along with brushes, paint, and stand oil, he works with the infinite, creating paintings in which order becomes elegance.
