About Moving Through

Expressive brushstrokes in vivid colours play against a sunny yellow in this contemporary composition by Yvonne Lammerich. The form of this silkscreen on paper is dynamic and abstracted, the colour palette of orange, purple, turquoise, melon and cornflower blue pops against the contrasting backdrop. In the 1970s Lammerich was already beginning to develop a unique visual style considered provocative at the time.

“So I decided to gradually develop a visual discourse that responded to what I considered to be profound questions of identity concerning human nature and consciousness. I realized that to make my work meaningful to me I had to pursue these questions irrespective of art world trends….” Yvonne Lammerich
