Floravanti, Hunter, Husemann. Glasgow Arts Centre. It's hard to think of a better example of pan-European artistic collaboration or a more fitting contribution to Glasgow’s European City of Culture year than the exhibition currently running at the Glasgow Arts Centre. The painters Carla FIoravanti from Italy, Inge X Husemann from Germany and Margaret Hunterfrom Scotland met up In Berlin, discovered that they were all working in a broadly similar vein and went on to organise
trio shows In Florence, Berlin and here.
In recent years, the art world has become so enamoured oi the concept of the youthful, meteoric rIse to fame that the fact that many painters only mature in their middle years has been
forgotten: the work of Floravanti, Hunter and Husemann evInces a reflective, seriousness of Intent rarely found In that of ambitious, recent graduates. Freed from stylistic inhibition by study under the greatest of the contemporary German Expressionist painters, Georg Baselitz, Hunter has developed an intense, savage visual language which owes rather more to the psychotic primitivism of Dubuffet than to the broader more painterly formalism of the man who taught us that the Expressionist punch can be packed just as powerfully when Inverted. At the moment she is honing her imagery and beginning to eschew her natural penchant for mark-making which has
' hitherto confused matters: the
admirable results are most evident in her spare charcoal drawings. Husemann combines a controlled action-painting technique with similar figurative concerns. More introspective than Hunter, she talks about isolation and communication - the big themes - which she tackles In a stinging, edgy manner. Fioravanti stands apart as the most objective of the three. She paints dynamic, volumetric compositions based upon sports activities such as hockey, using change and combat to comment metaphorically on the tumultuous events In Berlin which have provided the social context for the group over the last twelve months. The peculiar, exciting atmosphere of the now re-united German capital flavours all the work on show. (Andrew Gibbon Williams)
