The exhibition features a new body of paintings that captures Svenja Deininger’s (B. Vienna, 1974) fluid manipulation of color and form, resulting in complex compositions that arise organically as she works the canvas. Driven by both formal inquiry and a deep understanding of physical environment, Deininger will create a holistic experience.
Deininger approaches each exhibition as a distinct moment in time, following a single conceptual thread or inkling until it completes in a discrete body of work. In this way, she is is much like a composer, bringing together gesture, color, and line to create an intricacy of texture and rhythm.
Most recently, a physicality has taken root in Deininger’s work—with the forms asserting themselves more clearly and directly, only tempered in some instances by the use of soft fleshy hues.
