Delia Jürgens work deals with the ambiguity of life in today’s world shaped by global economics and digital networks. She reflects on how economic and cultural values are created and how they affect the individual and collective consciousness or body. The results of her multilayered works are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted while creating a new way of painting. Rather than presenting a factual reality, she shows an illusion fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination in a dense imagery that can be both - spatial and fictional - existing in the gap between and the dependence of one another.
