Barbara Camilla Tucholski. Streets

As an artist, Barbara Camilla Tucholski takes on the role of a bystander with an intense observation and an eye for details.
For her new exhibition “Streets”, planned exclusively for Gallery Sfeir-Semler, Hamburg, she will be showing five sequential drawing cycles, which emerged from different locations of biographical significance to the artist: Loitz, Ovelgönne, Rom, Wien, Berlin.
Her drawings alternate between the partly edgy, partly smooth, precise lines, forming delicate networks and curves. With only a few strokes the observed comes to life through pencil on paper, with pointed precision that reveals its essence. Tucholski’s drawings are the embodiment of her ways of seeing and perceiving; they are the outcome of her bearing witness to the complex thematic links between space, homeland and identity. The artist develops in her drawings a unique way of seeing, leaving the established central perspective behind in favour of a multi-layered connection between sites and vanishing points. The exhibited drawings in “Streets” show a direct and intimate personal bond with space and time as a counterpoint to the detached and impersonal virtual reality of the digital age.
