“Light and time have been defining constants in the oeuvre of Inge Dick for many years. And her approach has always been radically minimalistic, exclusively capturing for instance ‘white’ as the colour of light over long periods of time. She uses a wide range of media: pigment paint, Polaroids, analogue film stock and, most recently, the data stored directly on digital chips. In a setting that is itself almost clinically white, she shoots films over long periods of time that record how the light in the artist’s studio changes throughout the day. The data in turn yields large-format images through extraction and offsetting on a particular plane, with eloquent titles like frühlings licht weiss [spring light white]. Her artistic work explores light with minimalist methods that have a direct impact, with the artist’s interventions limited to a minimum of technology. Nonetheless, the films and image surfaces created are fascinatingly colour-intensive, making the experience of the actual composition of the white light highly sensuous.”
