About

'Schlüsselloch' by Fides Becker Acrylic and Eggtempera on Canvas, 33 x 54 cm, 2017 The leading theme of the artist’s interventions is the staging of temporality, transience, and change. Fides Becker (* 1962) developed and pursued her picturesque strategies in the illusionistic pictorial space. Her practice explores intimate worlds through objects and materials we associate with the private sphere in everyday life. Sofas, beds, curtains, mirrors, and sheets are reconstituted in her paintings as fragments, details or dissolving surfaces that engage with the ambiguities between presence and absence, past and present, and personal and collective images. Fides Becker (*1962 in Worms) studied at the Städel School in Frankfurt a.M., at the Academie van Beeldende Kunsten in Rotterdam, and at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin. Her works can be found in numerous national and international collections, such as the National Collection of Rhineland-Palatinate, the Art Collection of the German Bank, or the Stichting Beeldende Art Amsterdam. Fides Becker lives in Frankfurt and Berlin. Patina of the Time The extraordinary artist and empirical cultural anthropologist Fides Becker, born in 1962, develops and pursues her painterly strategies in the large-format illusionistic picture space with a subversive play of light and color. In her pure painting on canvas, she reflects everyday objects, places, or rooms from other epochs with a mysterious patina, which are culturally connoted in our society. She inhales them with emotions and lends these dead objects an independent life. In this way, they receive something essential and at the same time morbid ambivalence, which makes the penetration of space and time experience in our present day a reality. – Brigitta Amalia Gonser
