Dörte Kraft's paintings have no beginning and no end.

A form floating deliberately out of brightly colored prisms into an uncertain darkness.

All appears essentially in the optical flicker of a sparkling, radiant resplendence.

And from this shimmering pool of abstract expanses brimming with spirals, circles, waves and lines; objectively representational forms suddenly emerge.

...force fields, hidden from the level of the naked eye, (made visible)...

The appearance conveyed is one of a continual rotation around a central point, a circle interrupted - sometimes more abruptly, at other times less so.
