Charline von Heyl - Now or Else

Charline von Heyl's painting displays an amalgam of the most diverse effects, which generate vibrating energies and tensions: dynamic forms enfold graphic structures, dazzling colours encounter muted shades, abstract gestures collide with the fleeting memory of something real.

She creates pictures that "have the iconic value of signs yet always remain ambivalent and mysterious in their meaning. (…)."

"Now or Else" offers an in-depth insight into von Heyl's fascinating oeuvre and shows a focused selection of paintings dating from the mid-1990s as well as some current works on paper. Published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Tate Liverpool and Kunsthalle Nürnberg.
