Andrea Damp – Plimpplamppletteren

12.03 - 03.04 2021

Andrea Damp subtly balances abstraction and figuration in her paintings. Her works are created in a sophisticated process of layers and superimpositions, which make the
sensual process of the painting’s creation palpable. With the use of figurative elements, the painter transforms her compositions into narrative, associative pictorial worlds that are characterized by atmosphere and emotional expression. Andrea Damp’s painting thus forms an incomparable link between the autonomy of colour and its ability to serve the image.
