The Galerie Esther Woerdehoff is proud to present Iris Hutegger’s first solo exhibition in France, from March 22nd to April 30th, 2016.

About

Originally from Austria, she became an artist in her thirties. From a certain distance, her artworks look like colored pencil drawings. But as you get closer, you can perceive the grain of the black and white photograph, and also hundreds of threads, overlapping on the image. Iris Hutegger, passionate hiker of the Alps, takes photographs of these rocky elements she knows since childhood using color films she then develops, often months later in order to distance herself from the memory of the place, in black and white and which gives the mountains a pronounced grain and a lunar appearance. Her work process is slow, meticulous and laborious. With the sewing machine, she brings to the landscape a unique color, a vegetation and geological dimension that never existed. We shall know nothing of the places she photographed, only that they are landscapes, empty of any human or animal presence, and where vegetation merges with the rock, out of season. This technical choice brings the reality of a familiar landscape to abstraction, leaving only traces of shapes and textures.
