Tinka Bechert, Paintings & Objects


16 Feb, 2024 - 31 Mar, 2024

A selection of large abstract paintings, will be exhibited alongside ceramic sculptures in this exhibition of new works by Tinka Bechert.

In recent years Bechert’s paintings have moved away from the distractions of narrative in favour of more formal elements such as the dynamics of colour and composition. References to collage, graphic arts, printed matter such as early 20th century cartoons, as well as pre-renaissance paintings that employ a similarly flat or non-illusionary picture plane, are recurring reference points in her practice. In addition to her large abstract paintings, the artist assembles found objects and hand-built ceramics into sculptures that underscore the sense of precariousness, fragility and inherent cultural memories found within the material of our daily lives.
