The random discovery of her exhibition's title in a Chinese fortune cookie is meaningful for Simone Westerwinter's current works. In expanding the basic accomplishments of the classical modernism, she consequently devoted herself to the artistic subjects of structure, raster and ornament. In her new works Westerwinter reverses her previous artistic process. She leans the canvas onto the wall in a high angle, throws colour on it, which, through the force of gravity, runs down the surface. While doing this, she turns the developing painting from one side to the other. The gestural self-expression is thus transferred into an omnipresent raster. This is opposed by current works from the series "JA/NEIN" featuring a linguistic raster as a background.

Simone Westerwinter, born in Stuttgart in 1960, lives and works in Stuttgart. She is currently represented in the exhibitions „Rasterfahndung. Das Raster in der Kunst nach 1945" at the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart and "TEXTILES" at KISS/Schloss Untergröningen. The encyclopaedia ‚Künstler. Kritische Lexikon der Gegenwartskunst' has just dedicated a comprehensive article to her works.
