Regine Schumann's Black Box on View at Museum Ritter
WALDENBUCH.- Regine Schumann’s art lives from the interaction between colour, light, materials and space. For her wall and floor installations she almost exclusively uses materials which, once appropriately charged with light energy, light up of their own accord. The exhibition is on view until May 01, 2011 at Museum Ritter.

Fluorescent acrylic glass is her material of preference, although in recent years she has also frequently worked with UV-active Plastilight strings. With these means the artist constructs perfectly geometrical rectangular picture boxes and smoothly arched forms, or uses them to crochet large objects using basic primal structures that extend out over the floor or walls.

In her searching inquiries into colour and colour spaces, Regine Schumann is very much a painter, if not in the classical sense of the word, because she breaks with conventional ideas by employing unusual concepts and techniques. In her works colour and material form an indissoluble whole. And her industrially manufactured materials are saturated in colour right - from the outset.

The works she creates in this way develop their full shimmering majesty when they are lit with UV light. Although Regine Schumann’s art also works in normal daylight or artificial light, UV or, as it is more commonly termed, “black light” transforms her works into radiant colourscapes that fill the space and enchant with their beauty.

The site selected for the exhibition in Museum Ritter is the large, windowless gallery on the ground floor. Completely immersed in black light, it becomes a “black box”, a dark, self-enclosed system in which the exhibits optimally develop all their “spheric” glory. On show at this presentation is a representative cross-section of works from over the years, including a number of geometrical object boxes done in acrylic glass, as well as several large-format crochet works. Also featured are several very recent works by Regine Schumann which are being exhibited for the first time.
