While visiting the exhibition CRUX at the museum De Fundatie in Zwolle, I walked past paintings by artists from Leipzig. The exhibition shows works by Martin Kobe, Mirjam Völker, Robert Seidel and Titus Schade, which, despite the use of colour by Martin Kobe, are generally bleak.
The art of Mirjam Mirjam Völker deviates from the other paintings. In her work, the lines and smooth surfaces that you find in the art of the other artists are not present. No sleek concrete and steel buildings, but rickety weathered and abandoned structures, overgrown with organic material.
