The painting of Cordula Güdemann captivates with strong colors, bright accents, joined splinters and passages. Sometimes large complexes of forms set the tone, sometimes a jungle-like impenetrability prevails. Often her themes and signs are politically explosive and topical, betraying the deep sympathy of an artist who is not indifferent and does not leave indifferent. The professor of the Stuttgart Academy represents a much respected position of committed painting. Her repertoire contains objects of our modern world from the bourgeois living ambience to the automobile, artifacts of past cultures and elements of nature. In recent years, her paintings have increasingly opened up to abstraction. About her painting Güdemann writes: "Painterly problems, questions of structure, geometric or chaotic forms and surfaces have occupied me since I have been painting, just as they have occupied painters and draftsmen for almost 600 years. In recent years, however, themes from social and political contexts have become increasingly important to me. That is, I do not exclude topics that generally concern the 'condition humaine'. I deal with these things, change the order in which they come to me, and create new contexts of meaning."
