Lightness and playful liveliness, movement and spatial rigor are the intentions that Elisabeth Plank (born 1960) and Moritz Mizrahi (born 1997) pursue in their artistic practice.

Elisabeth Plank’s paintings emerge from the minimalist tradition. Shapes is what she calls her most recent series of works. The amorphous form serves as a point of departure, with composition, repetition, and color letting this form drift into infinity. As in a microscopic observation, the particles begin to take on a life of their own and expand beyond the pictorial plane. From these precisely and subtly painted works, Elisabeth Plank has now developed new shapes. Created with an airbrush, they reveal an intense colorfulness, a psychedelic, hypnotic and pulsating movement. Minimalism enriched with the moment of movement.

Moritz Mizrahi’s works are Moves. Based on calligraphy and geometry, he creates forms featuring a rotation of 90 or 45 degrees, cubes of 40 x 40 cm. From a construction kit that he defined, spontaneous movements arise. Mizrahi’s preferred pictorial plane is the wall. Deserted places. His color palette – all shades of gray between white and black. In his book, he creates sketches that are subsequently implemented in public space. Physical labor. He releases his works into indefinite freedom. Canvas pictures remain. Form is followed by deformation, grayscale by primary colors and black. Minimalism in a current context.

In our exhibition, these two approaches merge. The works are pure imagination. Forms expand into the space. The exhibition space changes. (Christa Armann)
