EVERYTHING FLOWS – a symbol of movement. Heidrun Pfeiffer deals with comings and goings. Painterly and sculpturally she works with the motifs of water and fern. In the work, the symbolism of the motifs merges with the deeply personal feelings of the artist. To bring the observations of flickering, flowing and streaming water to a standstill, to conserve a certain moment in painting, to freeze the water, the light and the reflections on the canvas, but to continue to let them appear moving and dynamic. Painting is like a river itself, a play of forces: full of currents, counter-currents, eddies – hectic versus calm, movement versus standstill. Heidrun Pfeiffer has not let go of the river motif and is central to many of her current works. The subject is fascinating on many levels. Rivers are linear flowing bodies of water. They break through national borders: rivers connect countries and cultures intertwine. Another motif is the fern with its appearance that changes with the seasons. The challenge of representing the power of the fern while not ignoring its delicacy and fragility. As in her other works, Heidrun Pfeiffer seeks and finds the way between representationalism and abstraction, between complexity, detail and simplicity. The sculptural works are also about tenderness and strength, fragility and irrepressible energy. Unlike in painting, nothing is added here, no color is piled up or layered, but something is removed, taken away.
