Artists to Know: Larissa Strunowa
Larissa Strunova-Lübke aligns her work with the thinking of Aristotle's philosophy. Without taboos and prejudice she delves into the secrect of mankind, of body and soul, of Eros and Nous. She makes her very paintings into a secret, withholding herself from the violent regard of a consumer or a voyeur, who thinks everything can be taken in at one glance. Contemplation is present before, during and after each act of love. Man needs time to become Man, freedom to express his passions, a conscience for his own secrets and those of his partner, and the ability to reflect on the universe of his feeling and thinking - and artists like Larissa Strunova-Lübke, who have the gift to find an expression for all this, which itself becomes an act of love.
