Excerpt of the exhibition text

A text by Jurriaan Benschop

‘This exhibition shows the work of three female painters in their thirties. Their work alludes to an invisible counterpart, another half that is suggested but not defined. Thus the works ask for completion in the eye and imagination of the beholder. The artists work in different styles, yet they share an interest in the play of light, shadow, and transparency of colors. [...]

In the recent paintings by Rebekka Löffler, a network of connections appears through dynamic, colorful forms. There is a complex constellation of shapes, both angular and round, that collide, interact, and cannot be separated. The paintings could be read as metaphors for human encounters and thought patterns, or opposing forces in life. In earlier small-scale works, stage-like situations create a theatre of light. The actual action on stage is not there though; it is in the rays of light or small fragments of the whole where the drama of these paintings unfolds.'
