Memory as a dynamic process has been the underlying theme of Sabine Moritz s drawings and paintings since the early 1990s. In her work the Cologne-based artist has captured remembered images from her childhood in the GDR; drawn flower compositions; and in recent years has engaged with the motif of war. This publication presents Moritz s latest work: a collection of drawings and paintings of helicopters created between 2002 and 2013. The Helicopter series has arisen from Moritz s interest in the shift in their symbolic meaning. They are based on images of helicopters from newspapers and television that the artist transferred into her own language.The outcome is a series of beautiful drawings and paintings that range from objective depictions of helicopters to more poetic compositions. The works are accompanied by poems by Adam Zagajewski and Friedrich Holderlin, alongside a text by Hans Ulrich Obrist.
Seventy-two charcoal, pastel and oil crayon drawings and oil paintings of helicopters created by Sabine Moritz between 2003 and 2013.
Cologne-based artist Sabine Moritz began her studies in 1989 at the Hochschule Offenbach and continued from 1991 at the Kunstakademie Dusseldorf. Since completing her studies, she has produced several artist books and exhibited in a variety of solo and group exhibitions both in her native Germany and internationally. In 2014 she presented solo shows of her works at Pilar Corrias in London and Von der Heydt-Kunsthalle in Wuppertal-Barmen.
