What might be hidden behind superficial structures and in front of continuous grids, is revealed in
Maria Schumacher’s paintings.

What might be hidden behind superficial structures and in front of continuous grids, is revealed in
Maria Schumacher’s paintings.

Unbroken color surfaces in blue, gray, red and yellow, but above all: grids and intersecting lines, sometimes in strictly closed, sometimes in open dynamic arrangements, characterize Schumacher's latest works.

Her works show our constant conflict between the essential search for meaning and hopeless meaninglessness and at the same time counter this absurdity in fearless clumsiness and in deep mistrust of human ideals, absolute self-control or absolute control of a thing.
