transience and desovery new living spaces
In Sabine Burmester’s paintings materials play a very important part. Old, well-established, used and waste materials plus materials which are not evident to everyone’s eyes, come together on the canvas and communicate with each other. These independent materials find their full effect by being interwoven and supplementing each other and thus producing a completed picture. The surface structure, colours and characteristics are all placed in the picture with a certain purpose in mind. The next step the artist takes, is to add acrylic colours, to depict topics such as transitoriness, continuation and discovery of new forms of life. Burmester sets the materials in a new context and through their characteristics and qualities, she likes to compare the reaction with our true world and life. The artistis’s work motto is: “constantly leaving room for new things which crop up in front of my eyes”. And so her works are created with current political or economically and socially critical statements.
