Marianna Krueger's work presents a fascinating synthesis of technical competence and artistic sensitivity. As a result the audience can access her work either conceptional or intuitively.
An important aspect of her work is the usage of the paint process equivalent to a historic
tracing-system analysing and interpreting contemporary culture (as well as personally relevant issues, memories and metaphors).
Realistic or visual high-resolution surfaces in contrast to abstract elements question an overweight of the visual sense in our culture in relation to the whole range of perceptual experience.
The obvious visible finds itself positioned or rather lost against a mysterious concealment.
Krueger interrogates the purpose or communicative intention of omnipresent, stylised media representation and as an artist explores a societal process in media culture and aesthetics, which causes alterations of perception. Those shifts are characterised by increasingly conditioning patterns of perception, which influence and transform human standards, expectations and demands through media construction and orchestration.
Her paintings inspire by a tension, which is building up between the audience and the way of depiction revealing paradoxes of media immersion. On one hand a seeming closeness to the subject is produced and on the other hand inaccessibility of depiction and simultaneous omnipresence are made a subject of conversation.
