Albricht’s vibrant paintings derive from a private imaginative space. Narratives unravel by
referencing personal and universal mythologies and rituals. The use of colour and handling of the paint create overlapping layers of meanings and are central to her practice. The painterly language is directed towards escaping and reducing the object. Often reoccurring, these shapes become a personal code inviting the viewer in, while withdrawing from providing clear answers.
