'in between' – a collaborative exhibition by Christianne Haag, Klaudia Dietwich, Buffy Kim and Barbara Karsch-Chaïeb
The Naked Eye Gallery will be hosting an international, collaborative exhibition with artists from Stuttgart and London.
In this exhibition, the artists will be exploring the multifaceted term 'in between'. The artists offer the viewer the chance to indulge in the unseen traces of the face of the environment, shadows and light evolving between architectural structures and urban spaces, being in between cultures, borders and genders and the link between Germany and England.
Barbara Karsch-Chaïeb will showing new work created with earth and stone pigments alongside her more established work. Barbara blends modern and traditional materials from both the UK and Germany to create translucent work with substance.
Klaudia Dietewich will be displaying her altered, magnified urban and industrial spaces like an archaelogist, focusing on the subtle aesthetics of the unnoticed relics of everyday life. As a kind of “condensed life” she asks the question: What remains of us and the world as we know it?
Buffy Kim focuses on her fascination by space, texture and detail and experiments with light and shadow and uses her photography to inspire her etched 3D images.
Christiane Haag's artwork focuses on portraiture, her preferred techniques being printing, painting, drawing and mixed media collage. To Christiane, art is about beauty and is accomplished when it evokes emotions. In this exhibition, she interprets the time she spent with global refugees in Europe and fuses these experiences into her metamorphic portraits. From this she has created a series of pictures using drawing, painting and collage showing pictures of her 'bird women'.
The 'in between' exhibition runs at the Naked Eye Gallery from 3rd April to the 30th April at 5, Farm Mews, Farm Road, Hove, BN3 1GH.
