THE ART FALLEN-OUT-OF-FRAME

Ymmerwahr’s images, figuratively and literally, “are falling out of their frames”. Quite a few of her "outstanding" works do not require conventional frames in many respects. They float in pendulums to and fro, they are paradoxically painted on curved surfaces, they are applied to round tabletops, they are squeezed as triangles into rectangular corners, or they cuddle up even all around a column.

"Unframed" is obviously the hallmark of the idiosyncratic artist. Her works on canvas are not in solid fixed frames. They deny a strict given border; they constantly go beyond the borders. Her flowing shapes and colors can’t be captured in a frame. Ymmerwahr’s images are painted as transgression of borders. They deliberately break the boundaries between reality and illusion, between art and life, between dream and everyday life, between the sensible and the supersensible.
