Yvonne Behnke’s work reminds us of microcosms, those worlds invisible to man’s eyes, cosmic constellations or sedimentary rocks. Yet her paintings are not an illustration of scientific relationships, but deliberately free creations. They unintentionally and intuitively deal with the infinite, small and big. Yvonne Behnke experiments with very diluted acrylic paint, gravity, heat and blasts of air. This technique allows her to find new dimensions and depths.
The volatile elements, associated with the subjectivity of her creative judgment, lead to a delicate balance between intention and result. In front of the viewer, who is invited to open interpretation by the force of its evocative power, her painting takes on its full meaning.
