Brigitte Parusel explores geometric principles in an experimental way. Her work includes large-scale metal installations, delicate bamboo structures and projections of digitally produced constructions.

Currently she experiments with folding a geometric pattern made of intersecting circles. This pattern is central to her work and was previously the basis for the construction of metal and bamboo structures. The folded pieces take the exploration of the pattern further to create solid forms. The folded works are Test Pieces, which investigate the behavior of simple elements and their potential to form complex structures. During her Artist in Residency at Robofold in 2014 she worked with curved folding in aluminum using Rhino3d and Grasshopper.

Her screen prints and folded drawings are closely related to her sculptural work. In the series Spatial Hybrid she experiments with folding the original monochrome motive in different ways. The interaction between light, form and space creates the illusion that the prints are made of more then one colour.

In 2011 Parusel graduated with an MA in Fine Art from Wimbledon College of Art. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including the Royal Academy of Arts, Barbican Centre, Whitechapel Gallery, London, as well as Achmea, Leiden, the Netherlands and New York’s Odetta Gallery. Her practice is based at APT (Art in Perpetuity Trust) Studios in Deptford.
