How can you paint color? How can an artist harness its material presence, its expressive power, its spatial effects? These are the questions that the Munich-based artist Isabelle Dyckerhoff asks herself anew before every picture. Dyckerhoff, born in 1959, worked as a journalist and stylist for many years before presenting her art to the general public. Her work focuses on color and its expressive potential, as well as the effects certain colors may have on the viewer. Presented on canvas and on paper, her work often takes the form of minimalist, non-representational color-field paintings, and many of her pieces are also concerned with the interplay between language and image. While her works may be simple, they also provoke reflection: How simple can a work of art be, and still communicate meaning?
