Uta Reinhardt

Roebuck, 2012
Uta Reinhardt’s compositions are compelling. Her paintings, most of which feature human or animal figures, cause the viewer to try to understand what is happening on the canvas. Figures, some only partly formed, are in strange positions and alien  situations, isolated and distant from each other and from the viewer.

Completely independently from each other, Georgiana Houghton (1814–1884) in England, Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) in Sweden and Emma Kunz (1892–1963) in Switzerland developed an individual, abstract pictorial language. What they had in common was a desire to make visible the laws of nature, the intellect and the supernatural. Their works are being presented side by side for the first time in an exhibition.
