Uta Schotten

My Kingdom is not of this World

Uta Schotten’s images transport the viewer away from his or her everyday perceptions, governed as they are by advertising and screen aesthetics. The works she produced between 2012 and 2014 are painted with such urgency that they occasionally give the impression of being apparitions. The addition of wax to the oil paint lends Schotten’s works a matt surface structure. This gives the images a meaningful depth. Her timeless motifs evoke a sense of looking back in time and provide the background for the inward gaze.
“Schotten‘s colour concept is a secret, which very much demonstrates to what extent the terms ‘colourful’ and ‘in colour’ differ.” [Christian Deckert]
