In her painting, Helene Appel captures the object as an image. In a strange way, this is virtually the opposite of conventional realism. After all, she conceives the painting from the subject, thinking about how a specific object will structure a painting in its own way, and what paradoxes this will smuggle into the manifestation in each case. As a viewer, it is all too easy, under the impression of a successful illusion, to forget that this presupposes a complex process of translation from thing to image.
