Christine Löw "Yellow"
Christine Löw, "Delicate red"
In the beginning Christine Löw (DE 1945) did put the focus on colorfield painting. Since the last years Christine works primarily with a strong emphasis on geometric abstraction, a serie on concrete art, on a reduction of image structures with strict geometrical form, mainly with horizontal and vertical stripes with various widths. Her paintings are composed with only a few elements – line, proportion, color and medium and they are charcterized by luminous color, sensuous surfaces and clear configuration.
"The process of movement and change" is the theme that Margriet van Engelen (NL 1943) works with. She tries to visualize this process, which ultimately succeeded by placing her steel wire sculptures on mirrors. This has the greatest effect when working with geometric shapes. The grid with the rigid checkered pattern of the steel mesh, strongly rhythmic and spatial, makes special connections possible that provide insight into the coincidence of many geometric shapes. A triangle appears to be a square, a semi-circular shape is completely round through the mirror.
