Devoid of colour, Martina Steckholzer’s Neon uses only grey hues to further minimalise her architectural subjects; as the recognisable melts away through delicate layers of paint, only the empty inference of space remains. In Neon, Steckholzer uses the malleable quality of her medium to reflect phantasmal tricks of light, her graphic image dissolves into subtle hand-made gestures. Cut through with black forms, Neon gives the sensation of both solidity and weightlessness, creating an ephemeral expressionism from the cold rationality of photographic media.
