Gabriela Jolowicz – Disorganiser
Woodcut
01.08. – 05.09.2015
Opening: 01.08.2015 – 18.00

Gabriela Jolowicz, disorganiser, 2015, 100x78,9cm

 

Next to almost still life images with laptop or Ipod you will find dense genre-like sceneries of metropolitan life often set in interiors such as music clubs or pool bars. The environment the artist lives in and the situations she experiences are captured in the two-dimensional woodcut within the confinements of the black and white technique. Jolowicz freezes an already fading afterimage of reality in a disjointed and kaleidoscopic manner.

Nevertheless the mode of depiction appears to be realistic on first impression. On second glimpse the sobriety of the sceneries is broken up through the scattered picture references and unique compositions. Great richness of detail and a pronounced variety of structures bring about a confusing and irritating simultaneity of forms. The structures, executed in either acutely delicate or crude cuts, are heightened in a playful employment of proportions and through perspective distortion, readable as decorative graphic patterns or elements suggestive of three-dimensional depth. In this context, Herbert Eichhorn (Städtisches Kunstmuseum Spendhaus Reutlingen) alludes to “a veritable horror vacui and a desire to break open the wooden surface” and refers to the artist’s deliberate quotation of printmaking history.

Autobiographical notes and the archaeology of everyday life deliver the basic structure for each woodcut. The tranquillity of the settings is disrupted by scattered picture references, the singularity of compositions and an abundance of detail. The pictures often resemble Frankenstein’s Monster as they are sewn together out of heterogenic materials. This impression is heightened by the various styles and patterns used to describe the pictorial elements. Still, the artist tries to keep the illusion of actually existing scenes and scenery alive.
