Rosemarie Trockel has always used a diverse range of genres and media in her work, from sculpture and drawing to collage, photography, video, and installation. She also uses a variety of materials, not least wool, with all its socially charged meanings. Her deep engagement and experiments with wool over many years have allowed Trockel to attain great freedom in her handling of the medium.
In the most recent works in wool, the material is placed like a stroke of the brush on the canvas, initiating a subtle examination of twentieth-century abstract painting. The exhibition features black monochrome pictures placed among others with vibrantly coloured stripes, creating a shifting set of colour relationships that constantly renew themselves as the viewer moves through the gallery.
