Vernissage: 9. Juni um 19 Uhr
Mi-Sa / Wed-Sat 13-18h und nach Vereinbarung / and by appointment

Galerie Gilla Lörcher is pleased to invite you to the 2nd Solo Show of artist Claudia Zweifel. The exhibition „Before and after“ presents artworks from the genres painting and drawing.

Be it a painting, drawing, or object – whether digital or analogue – everything Claudia Zweifel displays, paints, draws, or sculpts in her exhibition (…) is reality and illusion at the same time. Her works encompass visual possibilities and perceptive stimuli in the surface and in space and probe colour as the comprehensive bearer of expression, as a constitutive as well as virtual element, whose effect ranges from sublime colour-space to individually placed structures to constructive flow and beyond all of these. Image data are woven in a dye-sublimation printing process with a fine synthetic support material and permanently materialised. Everything flows in a picture, whether data, colours, swathes of colour, or graphic structures. Nothing is left to chance. Everything is there, in thoughts, as a concept, before the transfer procedure begins. (Text: Birgit Möckel / translated by David Sánchez)

Clauda Zweifel´s drawing „La Promenade“ refers to the ornamental design of the famous Hermés foulards, the so-called „Carrés“, which themselves are inspired by pictures and symbolism of the European cultural history.
