“…The basis of her Biome are so-called “half-blind drawings,” for which the artist draws lines on a sheet of paper with closed eyes. Creimer then intuitively chooses forms from the resulting graphic mesh, which she proceeds to manipulate, in some instances on the computer, to create a basis for larger-scale painterly pieces. These drawing are partly left to chance and partly created from an unconscious state. They appear as hybrids: organic, carnal, amorphous, and also conceptual in origin. They are her answer to the écriture automatique of Surrealism and, in terms of the artist’s handling of artistic techniques, bespeak a state before all media. …”
