until 21.04. | #1126ARTatBerlin | Galerie Gilla Lörcher shows from 11th March 2017 the exhibition “Von der Gleichheit der Dinge (cave paintings)” by the artist Susanne Jung.
Galerie Gilla Lörcher presents the 3rd Solo Show of painter Susanne Jung. The exposed artworks at “Über die Gleichheit der Dinge” are inspired by buddhistic cave paintings in northwest China, where Susanne travelled to in 2015 an 2016.
Stripes – crossways and lengthways – laid down in subtle colour sequences, glow from within, continuously shifting the parameters of perception into new variations. Apparently fixed expanses of colour open up to both sides – background depths meet foreground luminescences, and vice versa; horizontal and vertical, diffusion and extension, intersect with each other. Are these pictures transparent or translucent, should the gaze be oriented inwards or outwards? The visual field is a vibrating structure of distinct values and weights.
Alongside stand seemingly monochromatic fields that grow hazy. Glazes are layered upon one another, covering and nonetheless revealing what they obscure. Gleams shimmer faintly through the surface, floating like coloured veils. (Karin Stempel)
