It's hard to write an introductory text to my upcoming exhibition where the paintings are scattered in several rooms of my house.

When one attempts to describe and metaphorically interpret the elements of Elisabeth Heindl’s spatial installations, concepts quickly come to mind that have been determinative for her entire artistic oeuvre since her student years at the Academy of Visual Arts in Munich (1980-86). Not coincidentally, these notions are congruent with ideas that could essentially characterize the two revolutions in Western art, i.e. the Renaissance and the revolt of modernism at the beginning of the 20th century.
Constitutive for the art of the Renaissance were the discovery or rediscovery of space in painting and drawing, and the ensuing correspondence between interior and exterior spaces in two-dimensional and relief-like pictures. The invention of correct, centrally perspectival construction of spaces accompanied and embodied a new treatment, a reflective occupation with space, and it evolved along with new ways of depicting movement. Of course, this is not to say that movement had never before been depicted; but when one compares artworks by Mathias Grünewald, Titian or Caravaggio with earlier attempts to portray motion in still images, it soon becomes obvious that the stronger dynamism and dramatic intensification which occurred here were without counterparts in the art of the Middle Ages. The principal flourishing of formed and formalized representations of movements and traces of movement began much later, i.e. in the modern era. And it is here, in the interval that we now describe as the classical modern period, that Elisabeth Heindl’s artworks have their intellectual and formal roots.
