The attraction of this work by Katrin Brause lies in the reality of what is seen: of all things, a torn image of a saint is concrete, the transcendent content of which cannot be grasped in concrete terms. In contrast, the door indicated on the left is the most clearly visible object, but only in part. The greatest reality is the color in the center, which, however, has no reference to content. It brings the viewer, however, to the core of the painting, which consists primarily of paint on canvas. For Katrin Brause, painting has something archaic: this immediacy also explains why she hardly ever handles a brush, but works on her impasto pictures with a palette knife - with a mixture of brooding, despair, failure, destruction, and the pathetic "yes," the elation of having succeeded in forming a picture of the world after all.
