Anne Berlit is one of those artists who stage their painting as a delicate tightrope walk. Clear in format, reduced in formal expressive vocabulary, concentrated in technique, she designs multilayered colored fabrics on the painting ground of three-dimensional Plexiglas boxes.
The acrylic paints used are applied with a brush to the smooth surface, where they leave visible traces of the emergence of the image and a cautious approach to the completed shape of the body of color. The areas of color sometimes appear dull and opaque, while in other places they are bright, translucent, and open up a view of the wall behind them, in front of which the differently dimensioned areas of color seem to float almost without a support. By painting the Plexiglas surface from the front and from the back, lucid color grounds are created that seem to radiate out of themselves and allow colorfully refracted light to flow into the surroundings. Attracted by the power of the colors, the viewer’s gaze is virtually sucked in and led into the depths of the color fields, only to return to the surface in the next moment and follow the colorful shimmer of individual brushstrokes.
