EDITH JUNG

The Verve of Abstraction
October 9 - October 29, 2015
Reception: Thursday October 15, 2015 6-8 PM

German painter Edith Jung layers odd geometries over cool, lucid tones to produce transcendent, abstract imagery. The artist compounds color pigments with glue, applying a bright, glossy mixture to specially prepared and primed wooden panels. Lines are applied with a brush or etched into the board with a chisel. The symbols sometimes read like language from another world, and the colors, though applied flatly, have an atmospheric quality that allows one’s gaze to relax, as if looking far into the distance. 

As a young artist, Jung was accepted for a six-month residency at the Villa Massimo Rome, wherein she was able to develop a truly individual technique. “My works are to be seen as a creative exploration of internal worlds," says the artist. These internal and external worlds intersect to evoke imagery and symbols of magical and sacred characters which would be at home in either antiquity or a futuristic civilization. Jung resides in Karlsruhe, Germany. Her work has been featured throughout galleries, art fairs, and other public collections in Germany.
