“It has been a great joy to have the opportunity after many years to use screen printing for the realisation of the Warten auf Freunde print. I found the technique very accommodating: the immediacy of cutting the design, the precision of applying the layers positioned one behind the other, the layered application of colour using translucent colour combinations, the small shifts and releases that are so important as tiny bridges in my work.

The titles of my pieces occupy as much space linguistically as they do artistically. They should serve to make dating the work easier, as well as acting as additional messages between me and the observer.”

About the artist

“The paintings by Birgit Zinner […] are emphatically defined by constructivist complexity of colour and shape; for them, the notion of ‘expanded’ painting is applicable. In the field of tension of graphical colour sculptures and painting, related to the methods of the principle of collaging, abstract and narrative images with pronounced serial character emerge. In a conceptual way, the principle of creative chance is expanded to include the musical theme of the variation in shape of architectural construction.”
