Variations on the Source
The continual renewal, life and fascination of water sources are central motifs in Yvette Kießling’s work. Origin, originality and femininity are the themes that accompany her into her work in the plein air. Since 2014, Yvette Kießling has been artistically engaging with the Elbe and its course. She also regularly works at the Elbe’s source near the Czech town of Špindleruv Mlýn (Spindle’s Mill). Over the past three years, she has created 15 diptychs in the same format. The pieces are all based on two multi-toned ink lithographs overpainted with oil. Their lightness and depth reflect Kießling’s pleasure in variation and colourfulness.
