„look into it“
- Start into the new art season at Türkenstraße 11 -
Exhibition from September 12th to November 8th, 2014
In September as the season begins with OPEN Art, visitors at the Galerie Renate Bender will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a luminous installation of the cologne artist Regine Schumann. Her fluorescent works made of acrylic glass glow above all in black light.
In her most recent series, “colormirror rainbow,” the delicate translucent surfaces shimmer in every color of the rainbow. These new works are both three-dimensional objects of color and space that integrate the immediate surroundings and delimit themselves as pictorial objects. With their constant color transformations they are more than a projection surface for reflections. For they also capture the mirror image of the viewer. The fractured appearing surfaces of these most modern materials are reminiscent of antique mirrors that have become cloudy, the aging process having been influenced by light itself. The spectrum of color and light is scrutinized in these works, while her new use of satinized acrylic glass with its matte appearance brings above all painterly qualities to the fore.
