Astrid Köppe’s wondrous A4 drawings resemble pages from expedition diaries, opened up, disassembled, and spread out in a game of correlation. They are, as we know, the product of the artist's imagination. Using large and small dots, closely and widely set dashes – electing to make these light and fluid, or bold, she lends fresh rhythm to naturally evolving forms, reduced to their origins. Across the full gamut of drawing – together with striking, generally powerful colour settings – she creates surprising new existences, one after another; endlessly, over the years, they have appeared individually on her sheets of work. We become observers of an artistic amoeba world of sheer inexhaustible, developing gestalt; its irritating, sometimes bizarre otherness underlaid often enough with a glimpse of irony, inviting us on a unique voyage of discovery.
