KATARINA REUTERPaintings 31.3.2007 – 22.4.2007
The paintings of
Katarina Reuter, one of our leading contemporary artists, represent
descriptions of nature and landscape based on both landscape elements
and the natural sciences. In her works Reuter depicts, for example, both
majestic mountain scenes and the world of single-celled organisms.
"Nature for me is structure, colours and models - not landscape," Katarina Reuter says about the sources of her art. Indeed, her works are often like diving through the surface to the world that lies beneath, to the structures that we normally do not see - like shifting from one of level of consciousness to another. Reuter thus examines the tensions that exist between the surface and the depths. At the same time Reuter presents nature as symbolic archetypes.
