From March 24 to April 30, 2010, Galerie Martin Janda is showing the first solo show by Svenja Deininger.
In her paintings Svenja Deininger, born 1974 in Vienna, concentrates on specific aspects, or segments of a space. The relationship to reality is not overt, yet is expressed. ˮIt is important to me that the painting can be seen as a process, when an old image surfaces like a collage, and one often cannot tell which layer is on top and which on the bottom. This is why shapes of frames often appear, and white areas suggesting light sources that usually are the pure base coat. This is how spatiality develops, not as a translation of our physical reality into painting, not as colours forming a symbolic language, but as atmosphere – that’s why they aren’t really abstract paintings.“ (Svenja Deininger)
