Press Release

/
Paperwork presents the fascinating works of the American artist, Owen Schuh, (born 1952, lives in San Francisco) who underlays his drawings with mathematical functions which are allowed to grow into complex organic images. Dana Widawski (born 1973 in Berlin) shows her 9-piece series, ‘Briefe an ein Ochestre’ (Letters to an Ochestra) which deal with the complexity of music.

The works were produced in 2001, and were permanently installed in a large-scale format in the Percent for Art scheme in the Georg-Friedrich-Handel Hall in Halle. “The developmental process of the letters”, according to Dana Widawski, “can be compared to a concert in four sentences; it is a graphic, painterly sequence of layers and overlayings, a mutual penetration of structure and colour.” In the subtle gouaches from 2012 by the artist, Susanne Jung (born 1964 in Prien), however, light and space are foregrounded. Her monochrome colour areas on paper, marked by a flat use of brush, appear to almost want to float in front of the viewer.
