Mixed media and acrylic glass
Christiane Grimm's artistic work is characterized by colors and their interrelationship. Her concept to from images is breaking through the formal stringency of abstract geometric art. In her latest pieces she is totally opening them and arranges them freely. Despite the diversity of shapes in her composition she accentuates the sensual aspect of colour. She is aiming at the process of seeing and on the movement of colours. In her objects she sets colour and form in such a way, that the one broken through the other, produces a calculated and at the same time vital image world.
They are poetic formations of light and floating surfaces- very rarely also achromatic. Through the use of reeded acrylic glass, Grimm achieves optical effects that are contrary to a clear spatial perception. Owing to the refraction of the color on the finely delineated ribbed glass, her work has a decidedly painterly character and seems to be less an assemblage of different materials.
