about Sigrid Beuting

In collages, assemblages, paintings, installations and performances „… [she] creates inspiring contrasts and herewith an intelligent and multilayered comment on the proportion of moment and duration, of transitoriness and eternity. Sigrid Beutings “answer” … shows, “how our culture treats the world”….”

Albert M. Dreher, Editor Rheinische Post, German Newspaper

“Exchange, balance, correspondence and dialogue are terms, that occur frequently in works of Sigrid Beuting. … (She)…transcends frames, embraces and defines space, a topic which has shaped international sculpture of the 20 th. Century.”

Dr. Peter Dunas , Arthistorian

„…her work titles …lead us to the place, where (she) activates her creative intelligence alongside the tasks of responsible explorers and researchers… . The humane and considerate basic position, which invokes a sensitive harmonization of the constructive order of things together with elementary/original symbols of natural power, trains our senses to comprehend beauty as a continually fragile relationship of suspense.”

Bernhard Mensch, Director of LUDWIGGALERIE Schloss Oberhausen

„… „ Place of strong silence“. Facing these works of art you suddenly hear your own heart beating or your blood roaring in your ears. … Such places are found for instance in picture spaces of Sigrid Beuting, who ignites quite an individual dialogue among form-oriented creation and its meaning, situated on an area of suspense between abstraction and figuration. At the same time her works thrive with provocative contrasts in dialogue. There is the realm of animals, human beings, plants and minerals that she allows to enter her art as well as the realm of industrial production and utilization – but also of the human soul. While being attracted by the physical, chemical and biological possibilities our world presents, the artist also analyzes this phenomenon at the same time. She allows us as spectators to be part of a “new” emerging of things of this world. Nevertheless this “place of strong silence” provides the individual simultaneously in a special and subtle way with a “place of provocative dialogue”.”

“(Her works) offer us… not so much the easy going answers to urging questions, that we are longing for, but rather induce us to confront and to differentiate the questions more precisely. They create a vacuum for a different perception, time and space to reflect our thinking …”

Dr. Susanne Höper-Kuhn, Arthistorian
