Anna Tretter became known in the 1980s/90s for space-related works in which she brings monochrome painting, mirrors and classic sculptural materials into an atmospheric interplay. She later expanded her media spectrum to include sound, video, dance and abstract color forms. The work on paper from the Daimler Art Collection shows a monochrome silver reflective surface built up in layers of ash and graphite. The combination of painterly reduction and the haptics of the materials reminds us that Anna Tretter, as a student in Munich, had teachers as Hans Baschang and Karl Fred Dahmen, early representatives in the field of sensitive, abstract form-finding at the interface between figure and abstraction. In this tradition, the artist continues to work on sensitization through surfaces, color effects and spatial perception.
