watercolor and oil on paper, framed: 172 x 242 cm | 67 3/4 x 95 1/4 in
In the new exhibition Oblivion by Iris Schomaker at Galerie Thomas Schulte, the artist presents her most recent series of works on paper. Her unframed large-scale works depict landscapes, figures, and animals. The motifs serve to reproduce a specific atmosphere, for which Schomaker has developed her very own formal and pictorial language. It shows the possibilities of painting to illustrate an emotional state, making it visually perceptible so that the paintings resonate with the subjective memories of the viewer. Although her works remain true to figuration, Schomaker consistently develops her characteristic abstract painting style.
