The painting of Australian Aborigines and Ceramics by Lotte Reimers
Exhibition in the Wadgasserhof from March 25th to May 28th 2012
The unusual juxtaposition of pictures by native Australian artists and ceramics by Lotte Reimers (born in Hamburg in 1932, living and working in Deidesheim), was stimulated by the particular affinity of the artist for Aboriginal art.
The immediate dialogue of pictures and ceramic vessel sculptures opens up surprising creative relationships between the colour moods of the clay structures and glazes developed from natural materials and the painting materials used by the indigenous artists, consisting of earth pigments or tending towards these in their colour. The juxtaposition of flat surface painting and vessel bodies encourages closer examination and discovery. Stylistic and motif relationships sensitize the perception of the observer and give food for thought. The discovery of related forms and manners of formation spanning continents and cultures opens the eyes to connecting elements and at the same time points out the individual and the particular.
