The series “Seismographic recording originated from the body” forms the main strand in Irene Weingartner’s creative process. From there, her drawing works branch out in various directions and are arising as; architectural models, moving images and drawings that grow into the third dimension.
Her fragile pencil and ink drawings, made up of a multitude of small strokes and dots, come together in their entirety to form a concentrated image.
As a result, dots and strokes detach themselves from abstraction and a concrete image emerges, such as a landscape, architectural structures or celestial constellations.
Weingartner’s works are often inspired by the natural sciences, which has already resulted in various collaborations with researchers.
Irene Weingartner (*1971 in Lucerne/Switzerland) lives and works in Düsseldorf and Zurich. Following her training as a structural draughtswoman, she studied at art colleges in Lucerne, Berlin and Chelsea College in London (MA). Her work is shown in national and international solo and group exhibitions.
