atelier meintke-behder


urban landscape


friedeRike and Hartmut Meintke-Behder probe the versatile potential of impasto and collage. In their joint cycle “Silent Dialogue” they use experimental techniques to create compositions. They begin simply with an agreed colour scheme. Then each independently builds layers. Varying consistencies of plaster, different types of gauze, sands, papers, oils, gold leaf, ink, acrylic, oxides, pigments, rust and patina are added and removed, kneaded and mixed. Cracks and fissures in an open-pored surface give rise to intriguing landscapes with fascinating multiple layers. Deciding when the work is finished is a shared act entailing few words – simply an exchange of glances.
