THE FLYING FIELD

Abstract Art in Berlin-Wilmersdorf

The color fields are large; the colors strong and rich in contrast, varying greatly in shape and size. Pure color dominates here. And that’s exactly the way it should be. The color fields themselves are independent bodies. The artists who create such works often do so without classical brush strokes. Instead, paint is sprayed, tipped, poured or even thrown onto fabric, material and canvases. This results in works of art that are determined almost entirely by the technique and the artistic qualities of the colors themselves.

The precise methodology and appearance of color field painting depends entirely on the individual artist’s own interpretation. Anne Schreiber and Sarah Alexander, for example, have developed their own styles. These two Berlin-based artists have known each other since their time at the University of the Arts. They discovered color-field painting for themselves at an early age – a style of art whose roots lie in the United States of America, where, as early as the 1950s, artists wanted to create a counter-movement to the portrait and landscape paintings that had dominated until then. Thanks be to the immigrants who arrived from all parts of Europe, bringing a new awareness of abstract art with them: less thematic orientation, more avant-garde orientation.

 

BERLIN’S MASTER STUDENTS BRING ARTISTS AND AUDIENCE TOGETHER

Given their shared interest in this artistic approach, Anne Schreiber and Sarah Alexander came up with the idea of combining different positions from the genre in a series of exhibitions, and making them accessible to the public.

No sooner said than done. Under the name The Flying Field, the two students, who completed their master degrees in 2010, have launched a series of exhibitions to present different artistic positions from the worlds of abstract and concrete art, exhibiting drawings and installations at different locations in the German capital.

This year, art enthusiasts can experience works from Caroline Bayer, Anne Berlit, Antje Blumenstein, Anna Charaktinou, Stephan Dill, Katja Ebert Kruedener, Rene Faber, Eva Galonska, Anke Göhring, Ian Homerston, Dorothee Joachim, Sebastian Lettner, Aline Mann, Mario Matuschewski, Evangelos Papadopoulos, Manfred Peckl, Michael Perlbach, Martin Eugen Rabenstein, Anna Schreiber, Rainer Splitt and Jan Wawrzyniak who, thanks to Diamona & Harnisch’s support of the arts, have all found their way to Berlin. Or, to be more precise, into the vacant car workshop Wilhelmsaue 32, a suitable place for installations conceived especially for this exhibition and combining video projections, large-format, color-field paintings and laboratory-like scenes composed of pictures and wall-mounted objects. Consciously, Schreiber and Alexander always aim to integrate the unique character of the exhibition space into the show.

If you would like to be inspired, you can visit the exhibition on Saturday, 16 December and Sunday, 17 December, from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Autowerkstatt Wilhelmsaue 32, Berlin-Wilmersdorf.
