until 10.06. | #3895ARTatBerlin | Galerie Thomas Schulte presents from 28. April 2023 the exhibition “Mother Tongue” of the artist Marina Adams.
For Gallery Weekend Berlin 2023, Galerie Thomas Schulte is delighted to present Marina Adams’ recent paintings and drawings in the exhibition Mother Tongue, the artist’s first solo show in Germany. Marina Adams has developed a dynamic and abstract painterly practice of clear and powerful formal language that centers around exploring the possibilities of form and movement while displaying the structural power of color. Her vibrant works create space and motion by assembling organic, asymmetrical shapes into free-flowing, rhythmic patterns. As the curator Helga Christoffersen put it, Adams’ “work demands silence, enabling us to think and dream and create space”, while embracing gesturalism and improvisation. She reduces the work down to its essentials, allowing space for all the senses. Rather than a purely optical matter, the artist understands painting as the manifestation of intangibles such as temperament, sensibility, intellect, and research.
“There’s something about color, it’s unlike everything else. I can break painting down and talk about drawing and scale, surface and touch, among other things, but there’s something about color that you can’t describe. When it’s powerful it holds the spirit, maybe like great music.”
