The paintings of Anna Leonhardt take time. Little by little, an astonishing light that gives the pictorial spaces clarity and definition emerges from the roughly applied, expressive paint. Her pictures are very direct, but based on experience. The atmospheres and sensations unfolded by its lines and its paint carry Anna Leonhardt’s painting. Mere surfaces become broad, atmospheric spaces, while individual colors begin to vibrate reciprocally and enthrall us as viewers. The book presents her painterly work for the first time.
