Of Harmony and Disrepair – Katharina Kühne

Katharina Kühne explores the structures of life, which she interprets painterly, installative and sculptural in her artistic work. Thus, in the rooms of NEWCOMER, she shows ceramic sculptures and works on paper in addition to painterly wall works until August 12th 2023.

In her works, the artist deals with themes and motifs such as connectedness, plant structures, interconnectedness, landscapes, underwater worlds or symbols of protection, healing, wholeness and growth. Often it is personal experiences from travels or observations on hikes that inspire her artistic work.

"Fascinated by the complex systems that make our planet a habitable place for us humans, I want my exhibition to showcase the beauty and diversity of the Earth and encourage visitors to think about how we treat the environment." Katharina Kühne

"Never are my works only beautiful or only cruel or admonishing, rather they often have aspects of both of these sides in them. They try to entice and enchant and, moreover, to point out grievances regarding many people's perspective on their environment and their own actions."
