Antje Dorn

The series presents brand new works by Berlin-based artist Antje Dorn that revolve around the motif of the road with all its different directions and turns.
The artist has made her own wooden panels, onto which she paints blocks in dark gouache. As physical objects in space, these works would at first appear to have little in common with roads. It is only the deep gray shades of the blocks and their white markings that suggest the corresponding associations. Sometimes a single block is painted onto a panel, and in other cases we see larger groups of “cubed roads,” their markings always following their own inner logic. The blocks’ perspectival volume creates the illusion of three-dimensional formations.
