Only one week left (or better yet…the very last few days left this year has) to enjoy the vivid and always intense universes Katharina Ziemke brings to her canvases.
She choses her subjects randomly, found photographs or new images from the media are the basis of her canvases, and just as varied are her subjects and themes represented – portraits, landscapes, genre scenes… – or the views she applies to her works.
There is a certain logic that manifests itself throughout her works, always suggesting a “different-fact”, or at least a situation resulting from an indeterminate event.
The “suspense” expressions and perceptions become the identifying elements of her works defining a “state of things” to come, those things seem to be connected at another level. Her art and techniques don’t use any particular recipe or ingredients (wax…) to bring a glaze effect and freeze the image with the characteristic density easily recognizable in her works.
