The exhibition catalogue for this year’s summer exhibition of the Ernst Ludwig Kirchner Verein Fehmarn e. V.: OFF SPACE shows paintings by Katharina Duwe from the series “Nature”, “Light Reflections” and “Urban Space”. The works focus on the question of human existence.
Urban life, the built-up space of large metropolises, the experiential space of nocturnal cities and the forms and structures of our civilisation are the breeding ground for the artist’s painterly investigations.
Katharina Duwe is not committed to any realistic method of depiction. She works with fragments and combines details from different realities in such a way that an unreal, often surreal atmosphere is created. The power of her paintings, apart from their aesthetic colourfulness, lies in the “off space”, the space that is opened up beyond the frame of the canvas.
