SPRING 2017 ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
ST. HELENA, CA STUDIOS
Everything is in the painting itself. Fine lines, overpainting, thrown, liquid, translucent colour. There are parts like glass, there are parts like dust . There is no autonomy of nothing. Astonishment : Certainty, doubt, love, discomfort and instinct . Everything, that connects us to the world, is there on the surface. Painting is incompatible with much of what is required of a mature citizen. As such, I try to remain an unimpressed painter. My pictures are accomplices, the material color is freely changeable as earth, water, fire, air.
Uta Reinhardt, 2017
