In Between
The work of Claudia Hirtl defies any hasty effort
of interpretation or quick categorization in terms
of the canon of contemporary art. Through the
dense texture of her canvases we experience the
blending of a physical act of signification and a
play of ideas and their expression. In this thicket
of strands of meaning, complex interrelations
between the artist, the work and its audience are
captured. My attempt to understand the work
of Claudia Hirtl focuses on a perspective that
places her individual paintings in the context of
the artist’s overall oeuvre.
