26 November 2005 – 15 January 2006

The impact of Sybille Berger’s paintings is immediate with their horizontal bands – sometimes three, sometimes four – of strong colour. But the dramatic differences between each painting begin to reveal their individual and infinitely subtle qualities. All of a slightly taller-than-square format, the variations come in the artist’s choice of colour and her divisions of the canvas.

Colours advance and recede, radiating and absorbing light, and rise and weigh against each other in a highly charged and fluctuating equilibrium. They are susceptible to each other and we become increasingly susceptible to them as they engage with our eyes and minds, perhaps evoking elusive memories and associations while provoking entirely new experiences. Given time, their apparent simplicity opens up layers of complexity.
