Eva Ohlow in her entire creative endeavors is dedicated to working with extraordinary materials and techniques. Painterly structured images are born from her creation, as well as objects out of rubber, sheet steel, iron, aluminum, Plexiglas or various types of foils. The artist is always on the lookout for extraordinary materials. Eva Ohlow's works of art move between painting and sculpture, appearing three-dimensional and planar, sculptural and painterly at the same time. Eva Ohlow's works are not attributable to any art direction, they are thoroughly independent.
In the encounter with the sculptures of Thomas Reifferscheid different influences can be seen. The reference to themes and symbols from architecture, such as gate and column and cube, is obvious. The subsequent sculptural work is, as it were, the discovery of a "formulation" without a function. The rigor of the original ideas and the hardness of the rocks is relieved by soft, as if flowing surfaces. Concave and convex tensions turn abstract ideas into sensual forms.
