Elke Jordan – Landscapes
Exhibition from 16.02.2022 to 31.03.2022. The exhibition is now open again for external visitors. Please note our current hygiene rules (see below).
"What people experience in my paintings, is exactly what I want to show."
The viewer is drawn directly into the large-format landscapes of Elke Jordan's. He is literally in them. The question of what might be (in) between heaven and earth is irrelevant. One can feel the essence of the pictured landscape not as a mere reproduction but rather in the way the artist perceives it. Not natural forces but slight motion can be spotted - flowing, pulsation, change and return, even becoming and fading. There are no human beings nor animals nor anything manmade in Elke Jordan's works. Yet they are obviously always about cultural landscapes coined by man.
The landscape paintings of Elke Jordan's arise from mixed technique consisting of egg tempera and earth pigments. Partially acrylic is added as a binding agent. The use of materials like sand and soil collected on-site establish a particular reference to the respective scenery. The indivdual paintings are created as parts of continuous series, e.g. "Listen (to) the Landscape", "Horizons", etc.
