Anita Hartmann: imaginative hand printing
Sometimes the works of Anita Hartmann have a dreamy quality; mostly the prints give the suggestion of something that is not realistic scenery. Still the two distinguished line with nature shapes have dark, tertiary colors. For instance: vertical lines on fuchsia before set in the background and horizontal lines in the foreground. The title is “essay de couleur” and one gets the suggestion of pouring rain on water that’s visible streaming when touched by the rain. On the front at the right is something that looks like a piece of a jetty. Curved lines in turquoise representing tree tops on hills, or may be dark seawater? Above this the sky with a lot of staple clouds, all this painted in two colors. The mix media work called “women with a head scarf”. Hartmann has both ‘dreamy’ landscapes and realistic scenes and scenery in her (mono-) printing and mix media work.
Most of the time it’s like a detail picture, with just a part of a landscape, nature or history.
