“WAYS: Christine Schulz”
“WAYS: Christine Schulz” Is a selection of recent works by German light and installation artist, Christine Schulz. Fata Morgana’s two rooms will be transformed into a maze of light-based objects filled with images evolved from found materials, collage and photography. Schulz’s work warmly supports plant and animal life, human form and design with an engaging curiosity and impeccable sense of balance and color.
The imagery is projected on walls and panels, backlit or as wall hangings. The play with light, color, layers and content gives a sense of depth of experience through time. Always luxurious and exotic, Schulz’s mixed media installation practice provides a sense of connection and nostalgia for aggregated places and times that may have never existed.
