until 26.01. | #2300ARTatBerlin| Galerie Inga Kondeyne – Raum für Zeichnung presents from 7th December 2018 an exhibition with works by the artist Dorothee Rocke.

The outstanding draughtswoman Dorothee Rocke from Frankfurt am Main has started a new working phase in which she brings back many of her pictorial elements into her drawing world. The artist examines these elements closely and deliberately plays them through on paper as a reorientation. Her lines run across the surfaces, on the one hand groping, like feelers, or they conquer the pictorial space extensively. And suddenly a solitaire becomes visible while looking at it. This drawing has to be explored in order to develop a group out of it. In this work, line networks emerge that connect small, dominant, black shadow bars (known from the 90s). Like swarms, the individual parts seem to move away, formatting suggests itself to dissolve again, until the net of lines temporarily captures them. This basic sheet leads to modified experiments. Dorothee Rockes’ impressive black-and-white contrasts come to the fore powerfully. Between the differentiatedly structured areas of tension in the new drawings, calming, radiant silence spreads perceptibly over a large area in the white of the paper.
