About the exhibition

The works displayed in her exhibition at Schloss Dagstuhl are part of a series of works from summer 2016 to spring 2017, focusing on fragmentary photographs taken by the artist at the Völklinger Hütte. Photographed concreteness and abstraction in painting complement each other into an exciting tightrope walk, in which their boundaries become insignificant. Playfully drawn lines follow traces of the real connection or the destruction of the object in the photo. These lines lead beyond the photo into the color, which seems somewhat surreal and irritating. However, this is resolved by the power and tenderness of the color which pick the beholder up again.

About the Artist

Annette Marx, an artist who lives and works in Saarbrücken, first completed her diploma in business administration before completing an artistic training at the Saarland Summer Academy in Wadgassen between 1994 and 1998 and then continued her training with various artists. Since 1998, she has been delving into abstract painting.
