every single day we are exposed to the growing ordinary madness of everyday life. but we have limited power. to refuel my soul I have detected experimental painting. especially the work with colours has a therapeutic effect – to get my soul back into harmony.
a breathing exercise and an oasis for painting is part of the preparation for my painting evening. and, very important, cosy clothes. when painting I like listening to chill-out music or sometimes also melodic rock music. music helps to escape my daily routine, to feel comfortable and to give vent to my feelings.
in my paintings, I’m experimenting with all kinds of materials, such as modelling/texture pastes, sand and tissue paper, plaster and photos. so often arise formal surface compositions. when choosing the colours I switch between acrylic and oil paints.
“painting is a piece of freedom in addition to the daily necessities”.
the subjects of my images often arise from everyday life. from emotions like happiness, joy, desire, but also sorrow or grief. it’s just an emotion of my personality in my present situation, an emotion that is embedded in the experience and influences of my environment. the result is a synthesis.
and today I choose the colours red, orange and yellow:
- the colour “red” looks lively, playful and brings dynamism to the day. at the same time red helps to think positively, gives self confidence and power.
- the colour “yellow” brightens up the mood. the good-mood-yellow conjures sun in the heart. yellow also helps with lovesickness, clinging and not-able-to-release.
- the color “orange” also brings joy of life, warmth and friendliness.
and the result is this image “mixed”, a firework of positive emotions and more …
“painting is a language without words.”
an artwork touches upon me when it captivates my eyes and my mind, when it surprises and confuses. and I want to achieve this while looking at my pictures. and contribute a little for my own “deceleration” in a jumble of everyday life.
