Alicia Viebrock I Wishful drinking : WISHFUL DRINKING

19 October - 20 November 2021

"Alicia Viebrock, a former student of Herbert Brandl, stands for the gestural and expressive variant of abstraction. Spontaneous calligraphic, powerful brush movements and coloured sprinklings on a mostly neutral or monochrome background recall the German post-war Informell. Partially even figurative appearances like boats or vegetative elements materialize in Viebrocks ink paintings on canvas that come out as playful-eruptive and fluid-transparent at the same time."

- Thomas Groetz
