until 25.09. | #2806ARTatBerlin | Galerie Gilla Lörcher presents from 28th August 2020 the solo show with paintings by the artist Claudia Desgranges.
Galerie Gilla Lörcher | Contemporary Art is very pleased to present the solo exhibition of Claudia Desgranges during the Berlin Art Week and the Gallery Weekend Berlin 2020. Both art events will take place this year in the week of 09.09.-13.09.2020.
The exhibition by Cologne-based painter Claudia Desgranges is the third part of the “Female Contemporary Abstract Painters” series at Galerie Gilla Lörcher. The series started with Ivana Klickovic from Berlin (17.01. – 28.02.2020) and followed by Simone Strasser from Munich (14.03. – 13.06.2020).
Claudia Desgranges says about her artistic work, which refers to an examination of abstract modernism, minimalism, abstract expressionism and color field painting: “It is my goal to achieve freedom in painting, to go beyond conventions, to initiate new viewing habits … We are exposed to so many media, everything is going faster and faster, a lot at the same time. I respond to this with the slow medium of painting … The goal is not to sink into a picture, the eye should wander around.”
