BIOGRAPHY


Katharina Lehmann uses the unique Thread-Drip Painting technique to create her sculptural pieces. Countless threads intersect and intertwine to form a network, an organic environment, infusing the monochrome, hardened acrylic landscape with life and movement. The idiosyncratic artworks transcend the two-dimensional nature of the canvas; the chaos of tangled, layered threads becomes an entity, taking shape to create a unique piece of art, as it begins to adapt to its territory, growing into existence in a mythical space between painting and sculpture. Creativity and technical craftsmanship create the ‘entity’, which is then free to be interpreted from every angle and perspective: to be freely experienced as art. Perhaps you see a shadowy mountain landscape, maybe a crumpled sheet or a cleverly woven web, - the inimitable magic of Katharina Lehmann’s artwork lies in the constant fluidity of the image. The visual ambiguity prevents the observer from drawing conclusions, inviting them to explore the facets of life and nature.
