colorful acrylics 2020 – bright pure colors and geometric shapes
colorful acrylics 2020 (new works in 2020) by astrid stoeppel: these artworks belong to my series colorful acrylics, a series of bold colors on a white, grey or black primed background. always the same colors in different geometric shapes fascinate me again and again. they reflect a part of me: clear, structured, but also always in motion. i really love to paint this series.
i’m inspired by the color itself and adore the purity. every color gets my attention. for each painting of my different serieses i need a lot of working hours and usually a very steady hand. i paint them all color by color and fill the canvas step by step with dynamic, vitality and structure.
my message? the time is moving so fast and our mind is strongly influenced by the media and social media. i would like, that people stop their thoughts for a moment, calm down, start to follow the lines, go along with the circles, look at the dots and color fields in my works and feel the vibrancy and attraction of pure colors.
for this series i use titanium white, grey and black primed canvases or stretched raw linen in different sizes and pure acrylic color.
