Speak More Truth
What actually is represented in her paintings remains secondary to Iris Schomaker’s oeuvre: Her work is primarily about the process of representation, about exploring painterly possibilities and the reproduction of atmospheric content. Schomaker finds her own original visual language in the tension between figurative representation and painterly abstraction. The paintings are just as much about the process of capturing something in a drawing and the discovery of a painterly composition, as they are about the motif itself and its atmospheric and physical qualities.
Speak More Truth documents some of Schomaker’s recent works. With a text by Dominic Eichler.
