Schwingung des Lichts (Vibration of light)

On Friday, June 18, 2021 from 4 to 9 pm, we will open the new exhibition SCHWINGUNG DES LICHTS (Vibration of light) at Heitsch Gallery with new works by Christiane Grimm and Roland Helmer.

The “vibration of light” is crucial for the design of space by means of color. Christiane Grimm and Roland Helmer have been working with this concept for several decades. What unites both artists is the implementation of this idea in artworks and objects that oscillate between the two- and three-dimensional. The Heidelberg artist Christiane Grimm creates mostly square objects with prisms made of glass. As a trained architect, she constructs an artificial space in which light is caught, broken through and transformed into a dynamic play of colors and their reflections. Color has also been the center of the artistic work of Roland Helmer, the old master of concrete painting from Munich, since the 1960s. His late work indicates a preference for relief-like surfaces, for these intensify the dynamics from the effect of color and the perspective of the viewer. The incidence of light on the artwork determines the vibration of the surfaces and turns them into a moving image. Light and the subtle vibration of color in space create for the viewer a multi-layered perspectivity at the limits of visual perception.
