Since her beginnings as an artist, Martha Jungwirth has valued paper as a medium for painting. Her subtle, intensive color compositions serve to convey her subjective perception of visible and felt reality.


Contemporary artists who examine nature and landscape in their work again and again focus on the book as a form of expression. Landscapes are composed from written pages and book objects are created from natural materials. Written-down myths of becoming nature and becoming human, herbaria—and books on herbs attempt to grasp the phenomena. Many visual artists take up the book as a medium—specifically also in connection with the big topic of “nature.” With this exhibition, the Museum Sinclair-Haus is finally becoming a universal library in which very diverse artistic forms of expression find their space.
