Meeting with the public
"On the way ": Exhibition(Exposure) of VÉRONIQUE GOETZMANN and CHRISTINE WERLHEN-MATHIS
chance offered them a meeting, an entrance(entry) to "materials("subjects) « and to "colours". Since then, if each pursues its road, their paths(ways) cross, cause(provoke) echoes, echos and tell numerous stories. VÉRONIQUE GOETZMANN over wants exploring, creating, playing with materials(subjects), colours, lines. His(Her,Its) support(medium), the paper, under all its forms. It feeds on silence and leans on the random(unpredictable) to manufacture little by little its works, internal landscapes, to the liking of felt it. Since CHRISTINE MATHIS-WEHRLEN discovered the watercolour, the latter(this last) does not cease evolving towards a purge, a lightness(thoughtlessness) and aims towards abstraction. What pleases Christine, it is to leave pigments to travel in the water, to accept the unexpected and surprises to create suggested, evocative landscapes of atmosphere and giving way to dream.
