Barbara Trautmann - from show 'Painting Objects“ is, depending on one’s perspective, a more familiar or more detached look at painting. The exhibition features pictures that have become objects − pictures created by time, coincidence or discovery. Layers of varnish, spray mist, folds of fabric or dye powders stop the eyes from penetrating deeper into the image. The works concentrate more on the edges of the picture, on the surface and its presence in real space.

Stray words on crumpled paper. A weak signal into the outer space of each other. Jeanette Winterson (Jonathan Carroll)
