Installations, abstract paintings, mirrors
Lately Ingrid Toogood has changed from painting fairytale landscapes to abstracts and optical illusions. At Kinokino she had vast areas at her disposal, but made the brave decision to put in only a few artworks. Here are abstract paintings on canvas, seemingly floating above it, paintings on glass in a cubistic portrait, reflections in modified mirrors. And a print with several levels of illusions. What I first see seems like a giant ribbon lying on the floor, reflected in a mirror in front of an abstract painting. But then I realize the ribbon is not three-dimensional, it is two-dimensional on the floor. And finally I understand the mirror is not a mirror either, and in fact the whole scene is a print hanging from the roof, continuing flat on the floor.
