Renate Krammer conducts an empirical investigation into the possibilities inherent to the horizontal line and to the material of paper on the basis of the artistic process. She directs her attention to the various degrees of hardness in pencils, the characteristics of paper, the dimensions of the pictorial ground, and the various instances of overlapping lines, as well as to the parameters of space and time and the facets of perception. Over the course of a precisely structured series of successive processes, the focus of her exploration of the picture is on color, material, surface, densifications, and empty spaces.
