With “Colormirror”, the first solo show in Italy by Regine Schumann, the Dep Art gallery in Milan continues with its research and promotion of mid-career artists with important international experience. With a considerable body of work, of mid and large dimensions (the formats vary from 80 to 240 cm in height), the exhibition presents the latest works by an artist who is considered, in virtue of her experiments with acrylic materials, one of the most important innovators in the field of color and cinevisual research.
The work of Regine Schumann explores the relationship between color, light, and architecture through light panels – a sort of monolith with vibrant colors – that offer viewers an evocative sensorial experience.
Regine Schumann’s sculptures are created to interact with light: the fluorescent colors of the works change with sunlight and depending on the viewing point. The artist describes her work thusly: “The colored and fluorescent acrylic glass plays, in my work, an important role. The material I use lights up as soon as it receives light energy, either natural or artificial. Depending on the position, the different panels create different layers, combinations, and selection of light and color”.
