AboutSabine Moritz is an artist based in Cologne, Germany, who grew up in East Germany under Communist rule. Following a 2010 publication from Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König devoted to her black and white drawings based on memories of Lobeda, a concrete housing estate near Jena where she and her family lived from 1973 to 1981, this exhibition presents works relating both to Jena and to Düsseldorf, where she studied at the Art Academy during the fall of the Berlin Wall.
The works in the exhibition, in media ranging from pencil, pencil crayon and charcoal to watercolour, acrylic and oil paint, depict urban spaces, architecture and interiors with both an astute sense of observation and a curious air of detachment, mixing the objective eye of a draftsman with the subjective and interpretative qualities of memory and experience. The works in the exhibition were all produced between 1992 and 1994 and are exhibited here for the first time.
This is Moritz's second exhibition at Art@GoldenSquare, the first having taken place in December 2011, and was accompanied by the launch of her book Lilies and Objects, published by Heni Publishing, London.
