A major theme for Ina Geißler is painting picture spaces. This defines the productive contradiction that feeds her work, and infuses her paintings with their specific pictorial dynamics.
It is the conflict-turned-fertile between the flat picture carrier and the interlocking units of spaces, composed of numerous painted lines, surfaces and structures that are interwoven to form a highly complex picture whole.
The spatial effect of the pictures arises from the visual cooperation of the viewer. To an exceptional degree, Ina Geißler’s works require an active attitude in terms of reception. It is viewing as a conscious act.
