Description

The gestural, cryptic and symbolic traces that Sibylle Czichon inscribes on the picture carriers follow the artist’s own choreography, which defines her own physical presence as the basic ductus in her works. She completely dispenses with figurative references and stands in a broad tradition of abstract expressionism.

The body becomes an instrument of artistic expression, directed towards the canvas, equipped with tools of immediacy, self-assurance and transformation. The consequence of this kind of approach to her large-format works is also the dissolution of static physical states such as that of scale or the question of what the creation of a work of art postulates of an artist.

“The consequence of this discovery is that I can enlarge my own body by using a very large canvas format. The other consequence is that I no longer paint what I see, but how I move. The traces of movement can be read as signs of movement. They have the character of a choreography.” Writes the artist.
