The work of Anni Albers offers inspiration for intellectual and artistic practice not only for the young students of her time, but also for contemporary art. This manifests in the work of the Chilean artist Amalia Valdés, who is based in Berlin. Her paintings refer to abstract forms from traditions of decorative and sacred geometry and combine these with structures and patterns from nature. Valdés uses cork as an image carrier, a raw material that reflects the connection with her origins and culture and makes a deep connection with her environment tangible. The works Organic Interaction I and Organic Interaction III are reminiscent of Albers’ wall hangings and patterns of Latin American handicrafts. The pastel shades chosen and the visible material base of cork convey haptics and warmth to the pictures.
