Corinne Wasmuth paintings are developed on carefully grounded wooden panels - onto which oil varnishs are applied. The oil paint is applied in many layers. This results into a strong brightness of the colours - awakeing the impression of a backword illumination. In opposition to Corinne Wasmuth's pictorial worlds stands the controlled controlled colour application not showing any characteristics.The painting "astronauts", that will be in the focus of our exhibition, is for example about the sight into a grotto. There are cristals in the inside of the grotto, that grow from the ground and the ceiling, in which dangling astronauts are captured like insects in amber. The metaphore of the grotto refers to the creation of an own fictional world - this figure can be found in other positions of contemporary art as well.
