Two paintings by Christin Lutze
“I'm looking in my painted image architectures and their constituent power is the space for the balance between rational, emotional and surreal elements. My goal is the combination of functional, structural and spiritual moments of the painting.
Compared to the exciting reality of the real space occupied by people in my pictures I build their own infrastructure, in which the human figure remains invisible: it is first and foremost, and almost always about space and space-defining use of color. My imaginary architectures and spaces have been abstracted from their inhabitants and emancipated - sign its own identity.
I open a link between reality and utopia, between real existence and intrinsic buoyancy, without cover in one direction or another. My painting is seen as one of avant-garde inspired imagination warm, light-filled architecture and landscape.
In the execution of my picture thoughts I'll stick with a respectful distance of observation, without redundant and attention to detail that the message of the painting would just talk.
The egg tempera and oil work is based on an immanent peace and collecting power. They feel when you travel, thoughts wander to find certainty or discover something new. Then you may come to a point that you get close to and decide whether you want to explore it further and hold, charge with its own importance.”
"Where others to execute oneself on media-specific issues, on style, on pace, on the rebellious gesture, there Christin Lutze proves that it can go just about large surrealist whole, which is probably best illustrated in the format of a poetry album hidden from the world.
Upstairs, downstairs, in snaky walk through fiction and self build, Christin Lutze curves in the role of a wave surfer through an aesthetic field, magical and created as an utopian attempt to control space by the use of color." Christoph Tannert (excerpts quoted)
