until 06.08. | #0592ARTatBerlin | Stella A. presents from the 24th of June 2016 an exhibition by Gabriele Jerke with sketchings, collages, polaroids etc.
Gabriele Jerke is devoted to the simple things and their unimposing beauty. Her drawings, collages and polaroids are on the line between concept and romanticism, her subjects are classical. Plants emerge from focused pencil line drawings, the polaroids are showing flowers, and on the paper finds abstract compositions arise including the accidental.
In a series of polaroids the first flowers appear in 2013. Just as with Morandi some vases were composed and like with Ikebana arranged with blossoms and twigs. The series ‘Japanese flowery meadow’ of 2014 is dedicated to the deceased concept-artist On Kawara. Flowers are depicted under minute lasting exposure (time), some of them as delicate beauty, others as elusive impressions.
Since 2015 flowers and plants have found their way into her drawings. The plant in the one hand, the pencil in the other, they are retained with a preferably even line, each plant by itself like in a herbarium.
