pastel, chalk, ink, pigment
(...) Elke Seeger usually starts from two basic elements, puts them powerfully in tension with each other and a third force mediates in fast, liberating movement. Thereby all fields of forces are clearly recognizable and permeable up to a woven structure. (...) In the large paintings, this task is usually taken over by the color. Elke Seeger surprises with strong bright colors, which she mixes specially so that they gain luminosity. Thus, deep red, clear blue and warm yellow energetically make their way through black layers. Their force sprays colored chalk strokes across the canvas. Seeger always concludes her works with them.
