In Bettina Hachmann’s work the colors white, gray and black are dominating. These colors for her are not only dark or signs of depression. They are rather a phase in the cycle of nature, where the energy is going inwards and reflection is able to happen.
They are symbolizing a period without which the germination and fertilization, and the birth of new life would not be possible.
Despite the spare use of color her paintings do not appear monotonous. With energetic surface machining, color fills and blurring she creates a complexity that takes the viewer into the depths. In many of her works there is a clear reference to the landscape but more and more often these signs of landscape are reduced to the horizon area. Hachmann is interested in the question how much a landscape really needs to be recognized as such, therefore recently even the last indications are removed, with only gentle gradients remaining.
