Is art, among other things, a means to understand the complexity of our world?
Is it, as a process that thematizes, visualizes and interprets, also a tool in the search for answers?
In the attempt to formulate the world for themselves, the creators of art also succeed, in the best case, in offering an option of wanting to understand. A process of one's own perception stimulated by the foreign perspective.
Works by Christa Filser created in the last two years only seem to formally map the world. In reality, however, the artist captures a world seen with her inner eye, which threatens to slip away from us more and more, and constantly questions it.
A view from above, a bird's eye view dominates the works on paper and collages of the last two years, transformed into an abstract-harmonic collection of patterns, colors and lines.
A kind of counter-reaction to the turmoil of our contemporary world, the artist's new works are characterized by clarity and calmness, eschewing bold pictorial commentary while still taking a stance on current events with subtle metaphors.
