Madeleine Dietz is known for works that contrast and combine steel and earth: Steel as a seemingly cold, smooth and constructive principle in contrast to earth as a broken, uneven but living principle. A surprising togetherness and juxtaposition that conveys very different haptic experiences to the fingers that run over the surfaces of the materials. And which develops its charm not least because the dimension of time plays an important symbolic role: The earth as natural seemingly transient, the steel as designed seemingly eternal. With earth, steel and light, Madeleine Dietz has created an artistic work that can hardly be surpassed in its symbolism.
