Katherina Olschbaur: Midnight Spill

Midnight Spill is a solo exhibition of new paintings by the Los Angeles-based Austrian artist Katherina Olschbaur, which explores the subtle relationship between representation and abstraction, creating a unique point of view that has been recognized, has profoundly changed the artist's painting practice and encouraged her to push the boundaries.

As moonlight refracts hexagonal ice crystals in cirrus clouds, a pair of elusive bright spots appear in the dark sky at the same altitude as the Moon, followed by an iris-colored arc of light. Dubbed a "moon dog," this lunar spectacle is a rare sight in atmospheric optics. The artist has created a dramatic moon dog performance that includes a set of portraits in the style of Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 14 in C-sharp minor. Created over the past year, the series evokes tenderness, indifference, and soulful and silent sympathy, with varying movements on the canvas reflecting changes in rhythm, emotion, and light.
