Kontraste
Simone Kornfeld

The central subject in Simone Kornfeld`s paintings is color. Through optical calculus, the artist develops visual illusions in which she examines seeing. Her compositions range from black and white abstractions, which can sometimes be read as room sketches, or as landscapes and about those that hover more in the colored ground as to find a strength stop - right up to dionysian color landscapes.

The process of abstraction is more of a mental one, whilst that of reduction is more concrete. Both factors play an important role in Kornfeld`s work. She focuses intensely on the contrast-principle: bright against dark, opaque against transparent, firm against fleeting, translucent against gloomy, forward against backwards. There is always a contrasting quality that maintains the momentum of the image.

»CONTRASTS is about the dualism of colored-uncolored, the exploration of color weights, color layers, color combinations.« (S.K.)

This catalogue covers the »CONTRASTS«exhibition of new works by Simone Kornfeld being held during August - Septembre 2018  at the Hartmann Gallery – Berlin.
