ABOUT_ME

WELCOME

They move us. They move us, the pictures by Bettina Hachmann. Reduced in colour, they are nevertheless rich in grey tonalities and quiet nuances of colour that push to the surface. They hold secrets, allow only partial, determined insights. Through openings, through cracks. But they do not reveal everything. It is the highly aesthetic, lively works in which so much is happening. They polarise, they invite. They are symbols for traces of life.

"In Hachmann’s case, moreover, there is not just the refinement of subtly staggered lines and fine, spidery webs, but also a narrative and dramatic complexity ..."
