The complex and multilayered work of the Argentinian artist Alejandra Seeber focuses on the reinterpretation of everyday subjects through spontaneous painterly gestures. The use of collage or folding techniques, which similar to Rorschach tests produce random figures, underlines the idea of change, upheaval and redefinition that characterises her paintings. Seeber’s works thus often bear evidence of disruptions: a delicate ink drawing suddenly collides with a black background which turns into an abyss, images overlap, and figurative elements unexpectedly emerge from abstract-expressionist images. It is only at second glance that viewers notice that the perspective in Seeber’s colourful representations of spaces is slightly skewed, that stains burst open the pictorial space and that the spaces in her pictures are devoid of human presence. The initial sense of light-heartedness conveyed by her pictures thus gives way to a more serious undertone, while the interiors in her paintings transform into views of mental spaces.
