Wiebke Herrmann

* 1987 Dresden

The climax of each of my paintings takes place at its very beginning, when the idea is arranged in my mind and adopts increasingly clear traits in front of the white canvas. As you paint, the brushwork continues to narrow down with every brushstroke and formal decision. At the end, the work stands as the result of numerous decisions that exclude other possible images. Yet there is just a fraction of the original effort that can be seen. This is why I like to work serially. Usually there is so much to tell about an idea that it can’t all be captured in just one painting. Likewise, the content of my work is structured. In the canon of works, I try to approach an idea of the world; in other words: my idea of the world. It’s impossible to take it fully, but with each painting I move a step closer towards it. Thus, my work results from all of its parts. However, in each picture, entirety is found as well.
