Annekatrin Lemke uses impressions of places and rooms as well as the shape of objects to explain mutual influence and relation in her geometric compositions by fragmenting and recombining. Her colorful wooden reliefs combine threedimensional art and painting, and feature architectural structures. They are snapshots influenced by the everyday life as well as music, literature, theatre, photography, street art and fashion.
What sounds, scents and sights do you encounter while in your studio?
There is always the scent of limewood and some music.
What is your favourite material to work with? How has your use of it evolved throughout your practice?
I prefer working with wood, especially limewood. Previously working very naturalistic, now I express things that concern me in an abstract way. Additionally I like working with enamel- melting glass on steel is an interesting contrast to my work with wood. I also do prints an collages.
What themes do you pursue?
Influence, reference, fragmentation, connection, fusion, expanse, surface, shape and space.
What are your favourite places besides your studio?
I like both- the impressions and influences you get in big cities just as the silence of nature.
