Horizons – painting in the Gallery Depelmann based on traditional language of forms of, Katharina Lichtenscheidts works appear abstract alone by the way their formation process: it involves deliberately calculating the random. Nevertheless, they suggest figurative and landscape at the same time. Filed under: Jack Fusco. The painter begins their predominantly large-scale works in acrylic and pigments after elaborate primer with large, wide continuous gesture, and progressively compressed the canvas layer by layer with different techniques. At the end she goes into detail, concentrated Caesuras and marks with charcoal, chalk or pen. In her style a development can be over the years such as at the Gallery Depelmann, representing Lichtenscheidt since 1998, recognizable and to strict geometric structures observed, that limit the flow of form and surface.

While the district increasingly plays a bigger role. To capture the artist’s work in its full effect, it requires a longer look into, an Is seeing through layers and horizons. The influx of the macro in the microcosm of the focusing on the small size (20 x 20 cm) is particularly evident. A pooling of the experience of seeing appears here almost as concentrated zoom of a view between space and compaction, increase with depth, between opal and opaque.
