De Jong writes that " Deininger is an artist who has taken the relatively small, in her case diminutive canvases of bars of color, white and grey shapes attended by errant marks and the diagonal line, and creates a hushed visual experience. Borrowing from the spiritually tinged formalism of Malevich’s Russian abstraction, Deininger’s grey hued canvases fall in the space between complete painterly independence and a predetermined language."
The gallery notes that: "The fact that [Deininger] does not work according to what is seen but rather examines the conditions of vision itself can also be sensed in the central significance of the color white for her work. Both as paint and primer, it emphasizes the materiality of the picture support. In its opacity, it simultaneously creates optical phenomena such as light-dark transitions, depth of space or the modeling of forms. Both with the material and purely visual effect, different spaces are made by contiguous surfaces and translucency that, according to the artist, are not 'a translation of the physical world into painting, not about color as a symbolic language but rather as ambiance (…).'
