Streuli’s works feed on ornamental and graphic elements, colours, geometries and patterns, which she generates from the existing imageries of the internet, advertising, printed textiles from around the world as well as historical image material.
While her works are painterly in appearance, she rarely resorts to the brush. Rather, she depicts traces of brushstrokes. What is more, she works with stencilled fragments of paper, dot matrices, fields and contour-lines built up to large-scale collages by means of printing techniques such as decalcomania, cut out and others.
The pictures attain their high visual density by layering, staggering and interlacing. They, like the commercial advertisements all around us, are carriers of emotion rather than information.
