THE ARTIST ABOUT HERSELF
I was born and raised in Munich. I developed my own style autodidactically. As a freelance artist, I cultivate a very diverse repertoire: my own paintings, naturalistic and abstract, murals, commissioned paintings, reconstructions of historical paintings - all my works reflect my positive, cheerful attitude to life and love of art - yet I do not want to and cannot commit myself to a single field. My motto in life: "The main thing is colour!"
WORKING METHOD "REFLECTING MOVING ART
In my abstract works I complement the 2-dimensionality of a painting with the dimensions of light and movement. Change of perspective inspires and reveals the simultaneous fascination of organic structures.
I work with different techniques that do not limit each other but open up in different directions. Many of the materials used can only be "planned" to a certain extent and develop a life of their own as they emerge through cracks and very different colour absorption, which I integrate into the creative process. The resulting structures are at the same time a micro and macro view - as they are repeated in the beauty of nature in manifold matter and most different proportions.
As a continuation of this technique, I use reflective colours that change their effect and colour depending on the incidence of light. This offers the viewer different perspectives and facets to play with on a visual as well as a physical level, to move around the picture, to change perspective and point of view. Only then does the picture open up and reveal its full beauty in the combination of organic level, expanse and proximity, physical and visual level.
The viewer thus becomes an essential part of the art.
