Dorothee Liebscher's paintings depict imaginary views of architectural and landscape spaces, which often portray run-down, abandoned buildings, partly overgrown by vegetation. For the artist, who lives and works in Leipzig, the investigation into spatial themes holds central significance. The viewer adopts the image protagonist role and experiences the architectural structures. Insinuated landscape views, as well as a deep horizon, convey a great sense of depth. This results in thoughtfully constructed spaces that interpret reality subjectively and reveal to the viewer a hidden world that always offers new mysteries and raises questions. The paintings feature a specific color palette and exist in a field of tension between nostalgia and utopia. Partially surreal pictorial worlds emerge on the canvas. Through the intertwining of reality, memory, and fiction, spatial compositions emerge that invite the viewer to embark on his or her own exploration of an unfamiliar, yet at the same time seemingly familiar world.

A vast, seemingly infinite plain forms the foundation for the scene: As if from nowhere, people appear on the surface of the image. They emerge from layers rich in nuances of light white or hazy gray, leaving plenty of room for interpretation. The artist Leszek Skurski, who is a native of Poland, repeatedly devotes his paintings to figurative storytelling. In his works, he depicts many stories, that remain open-ended and allow the most diverse interpretations. They are paintings depicting narratives that seem to have paused or stopped in action, and Skurski captures these forms with a narrative density. Many evanescent moments of our existence and interactions are captured on the canvas like excerpts or snapshots between their occurrence and disappearance. Hence, the images of the artist, who lives and works in Fulda, are reminiscent of film stills or still images that outline a content, character, or mood.
