Brigitte Waldach – Pictorial space through alternating negative and positive planes

The German artist Brigitte Waldach (born 1966), is deliberately working with defined frameworks, designs and materials. Her drawings are always created with red pen on handmade paper in a certain format. The predefined rules and the relatively simple and at first sight immediate expression of the drawings seem to draw the viewer’s attention on the subject. Waldach’s imagery has clear references to literature and motion pictures and her use of the highly symbolic red colour helps to reinforce the mood of an intense psychological space that the viewer might recognize from such films, but at the same time open to the viewer’s own interpretation. Besides drawing Brigitte Waldach also works with site-specific works, installations and photography. Her works are represented in a number of museums, including Albertina in Vienna and Berlinische Galerie.
