Between Time and Eternity / Zwischen Zeit und Ewigkeit
(English / German Edition)

Drawing Studies of Being-in-the-World.
The protagonists in the works by Veronika Dobers (born in Annaberg- Buchholz; lives and works in Bremen) appear isolated and thrown back on themselves. They are gender-neutral. A clear expression of form defines Dobers' work; she draws and paints reduced sceneries with monochrome color spaces. Her drawings or reverse glass paintings show compositions of objects, such as branches, bundles, heaps and the written word. In doing so, the gratuate of the Burg Giebichenstein Art University Halle creates poetic moments. With her lines and scripted imagery-reminiscent of Paul Klee's "line going for a walk" or Renée Magritte's surrealist word-image experiments-Dobers concentrates on the human world of thought and imagination, juxtaposing drawn worlds and conceptual orders.
The publication Between Time and Eternity provides a comprehensive overview of the artist's work. Along with notes by the artist, the accompanying texts were written by Rainer Bessling and Alejandro Perdomo Daniels.
