DEPARADE-BECKER steffi

Statement

Steffi Deparade-Becker – „Soul guide“

„The drawings of Steffi Deparade-Becker aren‘t all in all statements about colour, structure, contrast, what would mean to be occupied solely with an interaction of colours. But they involve a native dialogue into the image, which is the unique and the subjective one, that includes always history and therefore time. A time, which isn‘t an objective one, but just a personal record, in which colours are conjoining with an experience so having a particular shade uneasy to regain inside of the chromatic circle. In favour of the unique and personal experience including its history, the chromatic circle will be to be substituted by a very different one, in which the continuation of colours and shades won‘t be anymore a thing of their visual quality, but to be read as a consequence of personal decisions. And there‘ll be a stay inside of a picture, in which the moment is taking colours extending itself  to a period, dissolving at the same time transparently and unfolding thus its soft magic.“
