The newcomer Sabine Dehnel studied visual arts and philosophy at the Johannes Gutenberg-University in Mainz from 1993 to 1999. She was a student in the painting class of Friedemann Hahn and became his master student in 1999. From 2000 to 2001 she completed her studies as Master of Fine Arts at the Otis College of Fine Arts and Design in Los Angeles. In 2002 she was awarded the SCA-Art Prize for young art. In her large paintings, just as it is the case with this one, Dehnel enlarges details from her private photographs and makes them independent compositions. Through her method the motifs become alienated and anonymized, so that the observer gets an opportunity to project own memories and emotions onto the picture. "These are the questions I am concerned with: How does perception work? How can I eliminate reason? How much nostalgia is in canvas and oil? Why do I trust photography more than painting? Which medium is more suitable in capturing the moment? Questions that have expanded my image world. A world that is about arousing desires! The desire to feel the moment." (Sabine Dehnel, quoted after ex. cat. "Keine Ferien", Frankfurt/Copenhagen 2004, p. 28). [KH].
