“From the edge inwards, the empty middle defines
delicate transitions into nothingness and into the light,
grounded in the square – yellow-orange-magenta
in the middle of the middle – silence, peace, self”

Margit Hartnagel, 2018

About the artist

“Abstract composition remains the theme. It is what it is. Nothing concrete, no shape, no story, yet the painting signifies for the artist the search for what cannot be reduced any further. At the start of the image formation process, the focus is on the empty canvas and taking a contemplative approach. “Like a child that paints the sky and the ground first,” according to Hartnagel. according to Hartnagel.

…On the edges of what is perceptible, the artist creates an emotional space from any empty space, a ‘state of accurate blurriness’, and uses her works to touch on questions of being and womanhood, feminist in the best sense of the word.”
