    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    “What the spectator doesn’t suspect is that in these works there is a latent gradation, whose dormancy can be galvanized by UV rays. With ultraviolet rays, the transparent surfaces absorb or give off blacklight by generating a combination that reverberates in the surrounding space. Acrylic material, which at first seems impenetrable, suddenly seems to dematerialize, floating in a glacial halo of light. On the contrary, the glazed surfaces – where light cannot penetrate – tend to saturate and grow numb. The coexistence of different acrylic surfaces thus creates a color synthesis that transforms the work into an intangible fluorescence.

    An analogous effect can also be found when day turns into night. At this particular moment, known as the “blue hour,” the world is colored uniformly, as if an intense blue patina covers all things and ends up making everything look alike. This is an intermediary color (between light and darkness) that distorts our perception: not a simple shift from light to dark, but a suspended moment, one of wonder mixed with melancholy. It is the same wonder that overcomes when the electromagnetic radiation wets Schumann’s works, a suggestion that is renewed the very moment when sunlight is reinstated and the tones once again delicately shine.”

    A. Zanchetta from the essay of the exhibition at Dep Art Gallery

Regine Schumann

Germany Born in: 1961

Regine Schumann studied art from 1982 to 1989 at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Braunschweig. In 1989, she became a Masters student of Roland Dörfler. From 1986 to 1994 she was a member of the artist group Freiraum, consisting in Frank Fuhrmann, Dieter Hinz, and herself. In addition to numerous scholarships (including a DAAD-scholarship for Italy in 1990 and a grant from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia for Japan in 2000) and commissions for public artworks, she received the Leo Breuer Prize in 2006. In her practice, Regine Schumann focuses on the effects of light caused by fluorescent materials. Some of the materials she uses are colored polylight-cords and different colored acrylic panels, which she assembles into complex color spaces in accordance to Goethe's theory of colors. The artist also uses blacklight to complement other colors. The emphasis of her room-specific installations is the extension of the existing architecture into a dimension of vibration and – as she calls it – the configuration of a room temperature: “The inclusion of sculptural principles as hanging, laying, arranging, conjointing, jacketing is characteristic of the work of Regine Schumann and leads towards a thinking in colors and color spaces in a spatially experiential plasticity." Regine Schumann describes her method of operation thusly: “It's the material of the colored and fluorescent acrylic glass that takes an important role in my work. The material used illuminates when light energy is supplied to it, whether in the form of natural daylight or artificial light. Differently colored plates depending on the location lead towards a candling, laying, blending, and selection of the light itself."
