|Lee Maelzer’s paintings are landscapes and interiors meticulously put together, with something of a cinematographic
reminiscence and grainy photographic quality. Often, they contain the hidden mystery of untold stories, which makes her works paradoxical observations.|
Inspired by David Lynch, Maelzer creates intricate and complicated scenarios, where the banality of spaces and objects are suddenly unbalanced. This evokes the tension and drama of their weaknesses, thereby intensifying an omnipresent catastrophe.
Claudia Comte’s work comprises of sculptures realised with chainsaws, paintings, pyrography and photographs. She uses her amused and sometimes ironically tender outlook to sort through the inspirations that stem from her deep love of nature as well as the spontaneous memories of films, modern fairytales and Hollywood myths from childhood.
Her paintings are marked by an instinctive precision, which, when observed closely, reveal her fidelity to the actually relevant themes and anecdotes that may have previously seemed light-hearted. In this way, her sculptures, paintings and photographs are indistinguishable from her personal charisma. Her work as a whole communicates an honesty and energy, which are contagiously transmitted in the exhibition INIMITABLE.
