working devoutly in clay, i continue to be challenged and seduced by the medium. the manipulation of the material is what excites me, whether i am working big or small, loosely or precisely.
interior and exterior spaces are primary oppositions that i use in my work both formally and conceptually. using animal forms as a subjects for my process and vehicles for my content, i am able to address these spaces literally and metaphorically. the animal form allows me to juxtapose other distinct opposites such as life and death, positive and negative. i feel that through this synthesis i am presenting questions and concerns which are not necessarily answered in the work.
recently, i am interested in creating forms or sculptures through the use of multiples. the multiples i am using are specifically segments of animals made with both hand-built and mold made forms. by fragmenting and stacking them, i am trying to obscure the initial subject and capture the evidence of a space and motion. i work and build both intuitively and analytically in an attempt to contrast these formal characteristics and to push my concepts.
works are earthenware, slipcast

painting after painting: svenja deininger‘ s works reflect the manifold problematic issues and crises of art in an era of technical images, making them productive as a creative impulse. the artist questions materials, methods, and apodictic demands for the representational and abstraction and derives aesthetic solutions from these conflict situations. she is not concerned with achieving a fake artistic harmony, but with understanding the dissonances implied in modern painting as an integral part of her world.
svenja deininger frequently uses different priming coats that produce a surface tension in her pictures and influence their coloring – a modular approach which relies on colors for atmospheric purposes either in order to achieve some kind of balance or to provide a counterweight.
despite its explicitly non-narrative character, svenja deininger‘ s painting seems to unfold mysterious pictorial spaces. sometimes one feels like looking through a window at a light-flooded scenery as in an edward hopper picture; occasionally, the viewer is confronted with an illusion of spatial depth through sharply contrasting light and dark tones and the combination of geometrical patterns. „i use different methods of painting in one picture, which exist side by side. i do not pursue them further sometimes and destroy their results until they suddenly combine again“
