Hedwig Eberle

Germany, 1977


In her artistic practice, Hedwig Eberle devotes herself to mastering a pandemonium of fluttering lines and effervescent colours. In painting and drawing, she creates rhythmic abstract compositions that are characterized by their peculiar exuberant chromaticism and harmonious interplay of relationships between forms and volumes with their own inner logic. Some in bold colours others in black and white, the artist’s works on paper which will be presented in Lisbon combine painterly gestural qualities with calligraphic properties. Dancing chords of lines and chanting colour tones populate the surface of Eberle’s pictures, opening up spaces and perspectives, and moving effortlessly – from the gracefully delicate to the flaringly impetuous – in interstices that are barely visible, but clearly perceptible. The processuality of a controlled, and at the same time unconscious, artistic struggle for colour and form is inscribed in Eberle’s works.
