Product Description

Emphasizing the bodily act of painting, Caroline Streck (b. Kempen, Germany, 1986; lives in Gießen and works in Frankfurt am Main) imparts forms and colors to the canvas in rhythmical motion. The artist’s paintings ponder the architectural structures that define our everyday lives such as road trajectories, building façades, or the influence of light and shadow—often inspired by personal recollections and biographical references. At first glance, a rigorous order appears to obtain in Streck’s work, but more careful inspection reveals its disintegration. A similar effect is sensed as the reader browses her monograph. Half-sealed detail views inserted between the pages allow for closer study of her work. And the choice of colors, too, is a felt decision, converging with the rhythmical contouring of forms on the canvas.

Durchstreifen is Caroline Streck’s first monograph, presenting works from the past six years. With an essay by Sonja-Maria Borstner and a conversation between the artist and Katharina Hinsberg.
