Kerstin Kartscher creates imaginative, utopian visual worlds that are reminiscent of mythologies or dream-like landscapes and situations but defy explicit sources. Time and space are captured within an unknown particular universe. The subtle texture of lines evokes Japanese woodcut and illustration. Kartscher's untitled collages combine photographs and drawn images to compose fascinating worlds between figuration and abstraction. A brick wall carrying a opened matchbox, a structure of green dashes and dots, a palm tree and a undefinied pointed object may engage in associative relations.
