The Title of Dasha Shishkin’s new exhibition at Andreas Grimm: “Love Sick” names exactly the state between sky-high cheering and being deeply grieved, a condition which all (sorrowful) lovers know too well. Some of her new works, which are iridescent chromatic drawings on canvas, use the interior as a connecting element, which functions as a formal frame and indicates potential stories. More important for the cohesion of the pieces is the attitude that underlies the body of work. It speaks of the eventuality of finding beauty in the alleged ugly, it is the visual angle of those who have just fallen in love, who see everything in shimmering colors before their fortune fades and the world occurs in sulky gray. Certain after that is only the knowledge that everything could or will be different. This does not only correspond to the experience of those who are “love-sick”, it also holds true for Dasha Shishkin herself, who does not see her pictorial results as definite truths but more as a procedural state because in the end everything could be completely different.
