SABINE TRESS’ PAINTINGS
Text written by Dr. Martin Stather for the exhibition at Rittershaus, Mannheim, Germany 2010
Sabine Tress works simultaneously on several paintings to avoid waiting for them to dry. She paints numerous layers and some previous ones are still visible once the painting is finished, therefore making her working method apparent. The use of spray paint adds a fresh dimension to the paintings. There are festoons and fiery explosions and shapes that look like brush strokes but are sprayed onto the surface.
