The iron sheets are prepared by her with different primings. The colours used are partially absorbed by the material and always merge in different ways. Furthermore the sheets are partially treated by her with powdery minerals and chemicals, the colours are always applied fluently in layers. Occasionally she scrapes, grindes and polishes the surfaces several times, so the artistic process of creation and the resulting iron landscapes are pure coincidence. The exhibition can be visited during our → shop hours. The corresponding flyer can be found → here (available in German only).
