Galerie Pugliese Levi opens in Auguststraße with a solo exhibition by the Danish artist Maibritt Ulvedal Bjelke. The work of the artist is shown for the first time in Germany.
The works of Maibritt Ulvedal Bjelke fascinate the viewer by their color. The juxtaposition of different, very narrow strips of paper, on which only colored sections can be seen, produce an apparent flicker. From a distance, the small and large formats of Static Paintings (from 7.5 × 10 × 3.5 cm to 180 × 180 × 3.5 cm) are very lively and three-dimensional. The applied collage technique creates randomly arranged new patterns and structures, which demonstrate the infinite combination possibilities of form and color and, when closely scrutinized, reflect the craft process. The large format static paintings are presented here for the first time ever.
The work of another group of works is painted with seemingly fleeting stripes, but not with the brush, but by a dripping technique: diagonal, horizontal, vertical - always with a clear integration of the white background into the rhythm of the colors. Dynamic and break-up of the lines result from the combination of different formats, e.g. Two triangles forming a square, six triangles forming a hexagon, or multi-part rectangles.
For Maibritt Ulvedal Bjelke there is at first no concrete idea for a picture, the painting process itself and the color give the creation of the picture before and thus open up the entire picture space. Her works are images for their own sake, objects in space, which can be filled with meaning and emotions by the viewer and are completely devoted to him.
