CHRISTOPH kathrin

 

Statement

Kathrin Christoph - Chromatic design and the colour of movement

The artist takes a self-reflexive approach to free painting, in which she gives in to her inner urge. By means of valeur painting of a local colour, she works on the themes of her living environment. The monochrome colour schemes are strongly contrasted by different glazes and the material change of acrylic colours and ink. On a single colour value, lines and surfaces oscillate between pure and broken tones, between delicately thin application of colour and pastel covering.
Her oeuvre includes paintings and material collages with reminiscences of montage structures and fantasy worlds of the Surrealists. She also uses the means of decalcomania to imagine external forms and to create fable figures, as if purely by chance, in correspondence with diverging lines, motivically charged in detail and surface or in form and counter form.
