INGE DICK. A Life for the Light
Inge Dick on her 80th birthday
Exhibition from January 15th to April 16th, 2021
Inge Dick was born 1941 in Vienna, Austria. She lives and works in Innerschwand am Mondsee, Austria.
The retrospective exhibition on the occasion of the 80th birthday of the Austrian film and photo artist in January 2021 shows works from Inge Dick’s fourpart cycle “jahres licht weiss” (“a year’s light white”) with new square color excerpts. Looking back on her work, large format polaroids and a selection of her “white paintings” are on display where the oil paint is applied in small squares with great precision using a palette knife. Her new “golden paintings” will be exhibited for the first time in Munich.
“Light is Inge Dick’s life-long artistic theme. She works with natural light, a phenomenon that is not tangible but that we perceive as a palpable presence. Working for many years with a variety of media using a meticulous, almost scientific approach, she has succeeded in capturing the substance of light and rendering it visually as its color temperatures change over the course of a day.”
