Exhibition“ Fruit Juices”
- sensual juices – fruitful sensuality
– male and female processes in the microcosm of the humanbody – a new cosmos
“In her large paintings Christiane Saenger observes the creation and growth of life. Her preoccupation with this theme leads into the inner world of the human body, to discover the fascinating and rich realm of male and female biology. With playful imagery she directs our focus to the human cell, mainly the ovum, and the structures and forms inside of the womb.”
2004 - The themes of these paintings go through a transition from the emergence of life to the process of aging and ultimately to death.
While using pictorial images of the “fruit juices,” I begin to integrate images of the desert. A dominating factor of the desert is an austere horizon. Found objects from my trips to the Sahara desert and a stock of photos influence my creative process.
