Karin Krommes

The backdrop to Karin Krommes’ work is the increasing autonomy of machines in the world today

Whether in everyday surveillance or in remote control warfare, as our technological achievements become ever more impressive, our reigns on our creations seem to become flimsier.

Karin’s landscape paintings show post-apocalyptic scenery devoid of human presence beneath skies still swarming with drones and watchful satellites. Elsewhere, hulking engines take on a life of their own, hovering in mid-air. Discarded ejection seats, still bearing imprints of their former occupants, take centre-stage in life-size ‘portraits’. But there are also attempts to quantify, collect and control: squadrons of paper aircraft silhouettes, pinned behind glass among insect specimens, serve as ambivalent records of both human progress and sacrifice.
