The paintings of the young artist Ina Gerken oscillate between abstraction and graphic techniques and hence develop a very special, haptic quality.

Marianne Lang

Feldspar, Quartz, and Mica

Worlds crash into one another when Marianne Lang (*1979) makes phenomena of civilization and observations of nature collide: leaves eaten by caterpillars with wood inlays, ivy reconstructing building substance, and thousands of woodlice forming a carpet pattern. The artist thinks the concept of “drawing” further—not only by means of unconventional techniques, but also by interlinking material and motif: curtains drawn with “yellowing” silverpoint; moths burned in with a soldering iron; climbing plants that reveal old masonry in a sgraffito style. Marianne Lang thwarts habits of seeing and thinking and polarizes in a subtle and intelligent way. The new publication provides a look at these refined artistic observations.
