London gallery Pilar Corrias presented"Pictures and drawings" - the third solo exhibition of the German artist Sabina Moritz in its walls. The artist debuted with a new series of large abstract paintings, which is accompanied by a cycle of new figurative works on canvas and paper.
Titles often interpret the picture. This can be seen in Garden and Fire Colors I and II. Flower-like shapes, transmitted by intense hues, belong to the natural landscape, and the work “Inside the Heart” pulsates with red and yellow tones, shifting associations towards human emotions. This is also seen in War in Heaven, where abstract images resemble falling flames. Metaphorical headlines, such as “2038” and “What Is Written,” are more ambiguous and invite viewers to develop their own interpretations of the relationship between abstract compositions and their names.
Moritz’s decision to hang figurative works with abstract ones makes their relationships with each other visible. Some abstract paintings echo the details of the figurative, evoking new visual associations.
