‘Imagine two white walled artists studios, one in Berlin and one in London. The first facing south east with one large window, the second facing south west with two. Through these openings the movement of light across each wall is subtle, percolating slowly. It is within these quietly charged environments that Gabriele Herzog creates her paintings. The works are fundamentally about colours, their exact relationships, and the search for what they can do. Her precise choice of untreated natural cotton provides the stage, the colours are the performers, their interactions the drama. In these playful performances Herzog understands her paintings as ‘colour objects’. These pieces are as much about the edges, and the space between paintings, as they are about the surface that quietly presents it self to the world.’
