Contrasting layers of various geometric forms create the different surface qualities of the paintings by the Viennese painter Svenja Deininger (b. 1974). Her examination in painting of the possibilities and limitations of the medium is articulated in a specific handling of the materiality of the picture support, the primer and the power of color to create form and space which is inscribed as a process into her pictures and presented as a field of optical contradictions.
The delicate balance of the internal and external, flatness and depth, harmony and consciously created confusion create a dialectical movement of oscillation between positions.
