The Georg Nothelfer gallery presents the first solo exhibition by the artist Britta Lumer. Lumer's paintings are portraits of the turbulent intersection between being and time, or, as the title of the exhibition suggests, of the moment.
Britta Lumer's oeuvre ranges from self-portraits to cloud studies. In her current works she creates a kind of encounter between the two: how a human figure, isolated and over time, becomes something blurred and impermanent, dissolving in all directions while at the same time being preserved within a single image, like in the 24 frames that make up a second of film in a translucent stack.
This intersection of abstraction and human figure is one that describes the vulnerability and fear of existing as an individual in an alienated world.
