Tracing nature - trail of structure

Painting and Photography: Rita Fortmeier and Painting: Marga Holthues Potthoff

The search for traces of something that surrounds everyone but is no longer perceived by many as an everyday thing - the surrounding nature. It exists in the small as well as in the large.
This fascination brought in to awareness with paintings and photographs by showing the immenseness, the expanse, the light and the elements of the earth on a large scale or the wonder of fauna and flora on a small scale. Layer by layer, works are created that leave their traces. Step by step, natural materials such as earth, sand and chalk are incorporated into abstract pictorial ideas.
