the painting of christine kühnen
bodies, flowers, maritime aspects.
everyday life, depth, banality.
rythm, sensuality, stillness.
head up/ down. insight: touch, swing.
in remembrance: that which detaches itself from gravity.
will, ease, feeling for forms.
where does the colour want to go? lines, space, material.
which expansion fits? the body, the eye follow along the material:
arranging, leaping over, going under.
the force of brightness as incentive:
what remains on the top? what puts itself next to each other?
what wants to go down?
pulling space, the forces:
the mounted canvas as skin in its individual format as membrane,
response with its openings for vertical relations, pervious to depth and light.
sustance puts itself upon the emptiness of the grounded space.
tilts, forms, piles up. a new organic whole must come into existence.
without words, but comprehensible.
in anticipation and afterwards:
encounter, the sight of the world, statement.
the love for colours, the lines of tension, the traces of movement.
