“” If, in Elke Daemmrich’s paintings, colour bursts so vividly that it drowns our senses and saturates our vision, it is however cleverly ordered through a rigorous and rich composing. Such care given to the construction becomes even more obvious when the artist tackles etching. Be it with strong water, a dry point or a needle, the line is sharp, precise and the abundance of shapes is pushed to the extreme, colours having given way to numerous lines patiently set down in the depth of the copper-plate. The energy, which we can feel is substantial in this artist and which gushes forth with such strength in her beautiful painting, never weakens during this true exercise in patience which is etching. In her paintings as well as in her etchings, through themes as varied as bullfighting, botany or the current hot topics, Elke brings together strength and sensuality with a talent which endorses an experience for all the senses.
