The paintings presuppose a viewer in motion.

And again and again the single vigorous human form - archaic, bareheaded and faceless - who has something to overcome.

Time permits new objects and perspectives to be experienced almost physically through discovery.

The spiral: entering in and reemerging from...as a symbol of death and resurrection.

While some are so free and tumultuous, others seem so structured and clear - in their coloring as well.

Dörte Kraft's paintings address the topic of time.
