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.
