Acrylic and gesso on wood

Executed in 2016

The enlivenment of the rigid, static picture plate striven for has led to the construction of coloured reliefs. The arrangement of identical bodies following a comprehensible system forms geometrical patterns; the use of wood platelets or plastic cubes more or less similar in design and stuck on in rows causes an additional rhythmicity of the painted area. The picture which has been extended to a relief also enables an attractive utilisation of the natural alternation of light and shadow.

This three dimensional relief-artwork is realised with polyurethane on wood. The artist cut all pieces by hand with a special hot wire and after that the artist mounted them onto a wooden plate. In order to get the special surface of the lower polyurethane pieces the artist used heat and a special kind of acid. After mounting and drying, the artist painted her relief works with airbrush and acrylic colours.
