About

This solo exhibition will comprise a new body of work by German artist Christiane Baumgartner who lives and works in Leipzig, a city famous for printmaking. She is well known for her monumental monochrome woodcuts taken from her own film and video stills of the everyday world in motion. Baumgartner is fascinated with speed and the passage of time, embodied in her artistic process through the painstaking medium of woodcut. The imagery portrayed is often referred to as banal and we are presented with views of motorways, road tunnels, and airport runways. Central to her vision is the drawing together of various visual media - video, photography, computers, television and printing techniques all of which are used to convey her themes in an entirely original manner in woodcut.
