until 27.07. | #2057ARTatBerlin | Galerie Inga Kondeyne – Raum für Zeichnung shows from 22nd June 2018 a double exhibition with the artists Christiane Schlosser and Marlies Appel.
The often large-format drawings by Christiane Schlosser must be confronted directly, otherwise the intricacies and the persevering consistency with which she adds her worlds of signs to one another can not be perceived.
Trained as a painter, the artist over the years is now obviously located in her idiosyncratic drawing work. Something like serenity seems to have crept into her work. Nothing seems wanted. By regularly touching with the pen, she fills the paper surfaces completely, and adds time to the course of the mostly horizontally arranged work – the Christiane Schlosser’s own sense of landscape for levels that trigger peace. In the subsequent viewing, it becomes clear that their abbreviations (points, squares or their interior patterns …) are not set mechanically in succession. Conscious, constantly renewed concentration in the preparation of the individual details characterizes this work. And yet accidents happen. On the large formats, the long journey with the pen over the surface can get out of hand. When lines of horizontal and dots fall out of line, this is an eye-catcher to us viewers. Christiane Schlosser now accepts this as belonging to the flow of drawing.

The drawings of Marlies Appel have been featured in the gallery through the fine humor of their female silhouettes, interwoven in geometric architecture. In retrospect, the folds of the drapery of the ‘Madonna in the Room’ by Jan van Eyck – combined with Marlies Appel’s inner picture of the first snow on the Swiss mountain ‘Jungfrau Joch’ – led the experienced draftswoman to try out a new concept.
Looking again at the column-rich massif, they were overwhelmed by the difference in light and shade.
Consciously developed free color patches, shaped by this significant visual impression, enter in the latest drawings a connection with simply structured line networks. She also draws on knowledge that she did while studying at the Rietveld Academie. At that time she was very interested in the construction-related training of the textile department.
The title of the accompanying booklet of this newly discovered graphic exploration path by Marlies Appels is. ‘Rok en / and Rock the Virgin’.
From 1978 there were many exhibitions in the Netherlands and in Germany. She posed in the e.g. at Gallery Apunto, Amsterdam; Gallery Rob de Vries, Haarlem, Nouvelles Images, The Hague; Gallery Espace, Amsterdam; the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and Schiedam; Gallery Inga Kondeyne, Berlin, Gallery Johan Deumes, Haarlem and in the spinning mill, Leipzig. She participated in the exhibition “Into Drawing”, which traveled through Europe and was exhibited at the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam.
