Gerlinde Amei Wöllmer: Symphonic Explorations
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Gerlinde Amei Wöllmer in Heaven and Earth. The exhibition opens April 5, 2018 and runs through April 25, 2018 with an opening reception on Thursday, April 5 from 6-8 pm.
Gerlinde Amei Wöllmer’s abstract canvases translate the natural landscape of her environment into cheerful explorations of both texture and color. Wöllmer often combines materials such as baked dry pigment, sand, and chalk with acrylic paint that imbues her paintings with autographic tactility.
Works such as Dark and Light (2012) marry contrasting earth tones with grainy surfaces that evoke the tranquility of the artist’s surroundings. Although abstract, the artist incorporates organic shapes and coarse lines within her works that recall elements of nature, such as tree branches and coastal grasslands. In works such as Hoffnung (2009), bright swaths of neon pink, violet, forest green and turquoise are indiscriminately placed against a deep charcoal background. Although Wöllmer places each color in independent regions of the canvas, each tone emanates a lyrical tension, as if the colors were engaging in a symphonic conversation. Wöllmer gleans much of her inspiration from music, as well as the process of her practice. She explains: “The process of painting empowers me, and I sense this feeling is also conveyed to viewers who seem moved by my work.”
