Press Release

/
With SUSANNE JUNG, Galerie Gilla Lörcher is presenting a contemporary representative of concrete painting at this year's POSITIONS Berlin art fair. The artist was a master student of Frank Badur and has been working intensively for years with color contrasts and the infinite interactions of colors. Both her oil and acrylic paintings are strongly reminiscent of architecture in terms of their composition.

Susanne Jung about her artistic work: “The inner fields of the acrylic paintings form an order of monochrome layers of color. The individual colored areas are driven into light from many glazed layers. The brushwork is cautiously flat and the surface texture is matt, so that it is about painted color, but its materiality is also questioned. Different picture spaces result from the different edge situations and spaces between the individual colored surfaces. The viewer experiences floating as well as firmly anchored colored surfaces or a continuable grid. Subtly graded, minimally contrasting color values stand side by side. The color surfaces of the bright pictures diffuse into the depths, the viewer cannot focus on them with the eye. The colors of the oil paintings, on the other hand, build up as a clearly perceptible opposite.
“Apparently firmly located areas of color open up on both sides - background depth meets superficial glow and vice versa, horizontal and vertical, expansion and expansion intersect. Are these pictures transparent or translucent, should the view point inwards or outwards?” wrote art historian Karin Stempel recently about the work of Susanne Jung.

Her work has been exhibited in: Vasarely Museum (Grauwinkel Collection), Budapest (Hungary); Kunstverein Glückstadt; Kunsthaus Ahrenshoop; Kunsthaus Potsdam; Stiftung Münchner Künstlerhaus; Verein für aktuelle Kunst, Oberhausen; pp projects Hamburg; Projektraum Berger Straße, Frankfurt a.M.; Galerie Weißer Elefant, Berlin; Galerie Nord, Berlin; Goethe Institute San Francisco (USA); 126 Park Gallery Mianyang (China); Metaphor Gallery, New York (USA); Times Square Gallery, New York (USA); Feurstein Gallery, Feldkirch; Evelyn Drewes Gallery, Hamburg; Galerie Gilla Lörcher I Contemporary Art, Berlin.
