Eileen Dreher graphically approaches spaces and surfaces. The persistence of change is inherent to her works. Everyday utensils such as tea bags, sandwich bags, dental floss, or industrial products such as rubber gauze or brass blanks are used to create fragile, temporary spatial installations. The supposedly familiar emerging from the obscurity of habit is brought to attention. Her works can often be placed in the context of responsibility and society.
The paper objects of the series FL[ ]G[ ]L reflect the reduction and rediscovery of the things that are to us constantly readily available and their possible relationship to a resolution. It is simultaneously a matter of extermination and an elimination of things. When does it become apparent that something is missing? A silent encounter is revealed as a caesura in a world that is overtaking itself.
