Tina Berning - drawings and collages
With drawings and collages she formulates her picture of the human body, its inadequacy and its fundamental relationship to beauty. Her interventions show rehearsed gestures pointing to constraints and oppression. Tina Berning’s works comment on the familiar image of man, which - caught in the interplay between voyeurism and exhibitionism - is subordinated in the media dictates willingly. Simultaneously her illustrations document the direct dependence of the dissonance of that convention.
"How a human image is changing is one of the most impressive releases of drawing."
Her figures are gracefully presented but their beauty remains mostly incomplete. Like shadows streaks of color put on the fine outlines, body and face crashing down and blobs superimposed on the figure. One characteristic of her drawing is the overpainting of lineaments, which brings the dispute of Tina Berning with the ambiguity of a word to express.
