Renate Anger

For Renate Anger, painting is a spatial event, no matter which medium she chooses for her colours and which ritual she chooses for the commission. Her work demonstrates the inherent power of painting, which comes about through reduction and repetition of colour and form, through density and luminous intensity. The artist covers unprimed canvases with broad, dynamic brushstrokes, with dense and overlapping colour grids or dotted grids, showing a special preference for idiosyncratic combinations of colour and form. Renate Anger makes situational interventions in architecture-related spatial works, which underline the colouring and the lawful structure of interior and architecture.
