Rollbild118 dark lux: The meaning of colour as a fluid phenomenon results from the fact that colour always expresses itself in the context of other colours, i.e. in changing relationships. This is also the basis of Elisabeth Sonneck’s painting concept. The emergence of colour relations becomes visible in subtle chromatic processes, in introverted, minimal nuances as well as in sharp contrasts. Her paper installations extend the fluidity of colour into spatially fragile constellations: due to the inherent paper tension, hanging/lying/reclining scroll paintings are created, which come into collision with broken finds, but at the same time also into a temporary, physical balance.
