When Marica Hafif (born 1929 in Pomona\, California) faced h er own artistic work a recommencement in the early 1970ties\, she discovere d a way to oppose the crisis of painting and deprive her work from historic al and current conceivabilities. By taking the analysis of painting away fr om pure conceptual basic research and using it as an act of freedom\, her c omplete Oeuvre was confronted with a change of paradigm. The development of the Inventory is so far singular in its consequent conceptual deman d to painting. Marcia Hafif did not limit herself to a formalistic level\, she involves the space with his aesthetic reception within her exhibitions\ , allows the composition to return and the paintings to communicate with ea ch other.

„obsessive compulsion“ can be seen as a composed installa tion\, a score with paintings\, photography and drawings that covers 39 yea rs. The photo series  „Pomona Houses“ (1970)\, „Karlsaue Lake“ (1977)\, „Th e Lake“ (from the 1990s) and „The Grill“ (1991-92) take us on a private tri p with the artist. „Black Ink Drawings“ from 1974 testify that even monoton e repetition produces changing results. With each day\, each mood and same signature the outcome is always slightly different. Out of last group of pa intings from the Inventory ”Orange and Green” (2009/10) some of these speci al colourful paintings integrate themselves in a poetical way.
