Description - Elvira Lantenhammer: Color Siteplan by Elvira Lantenhammer

Elvira Lantenhammer's paintings are colour events which rely to a considerable extent on intensity of colour. The choice of colour and its application take place intuitively in an examination of the effects of colours and their interaction with regard to a specific location. The term Site Plan, under which the abstract works are subsumed, serves here as an open action grid which conquers new spaces for the colours.

Colour is the principal actor in Lantenhammer's pictures -finely tuned or in bold complementary contrasts. The variations in the application of colour in the paintings challenge us to view them with relish. Her oeuvre sometimes reflects forms which particularly characterise a place. Mostly, however, the very colour harmonies and a structure of coloured surfaces are what which make the emotional and energetic qualities of a place or a country tangible. The publication provides a comprehensive overview of the work of the past ten years.
