In her monochrome works Martina Klein (*1962 in Trier) explores painting to the depth of its foundations. The effects of colour, materials and the perception of viewers in space are the starting point of her artistic work. Her painterly approach follows in the footsteps of so-called “analytical” conceptual painting, but she develops a distinctive formal language that is completely her own. Strictly monochrome surfaces project into the exhibition space due to the unconventional structural placement of her canvases. Other works bend because of their L‑shaped supports and are mounted on the wall or freely anywhere in the space. They become paintings that shape space and correspond with each other. Often these are site-specific installations with variable forms and arrangements. In these changing contexts Martina Klein examines the inter­relation­ships between the converging roles of viewer, artwork and artist.
