Manuela Sedmach: a painting exploring immutability and precariousness

Manuela Sedmach was born in Trieste in 1953. Over the years her work has explored inscrutable spaces and dilated time. The pictorial weave is built up through a slow process, starting with the dark black of the ground, then with the addition of glazes and layers of colour – aside from black, white and Sienna earth. In this way, the artist manages to obtain a very wide range of greys, reflections and light sources. It is the light that appears behind these transparencies, combined with light from the setting and its mutation during the day, that makes Sedmach’s ‘landscapes’ atemporal and ever-different places.The subjects populating Sedmach’s canvases are distant, indefinite and unknowable places – fogs and vapours, marine atmospheres, endless horizons, deserts, cosmoses and stars. The artist transforms her paintings into testimonies of the essential. The forms, transparencies and veilings yield to the imagination, emptiness invades the canvas. The concept of the infinite or nothing lies at the centre of her works.
