series no colors: i’m starting the year 2017 with my new series “no colors“. the topic of this new series is black and white. i use titanium white and black primed canvas and try to work and play with the strong contrasts to give the paintings balance and presence.
new mini paintings: two works series colorful minis 2016, acrylic on canvas, each one 20x20cm. see more at saatchi art and here
i’m inspired by the color itself and adore the purity. every color gets my attention. for each painting of my series colorful acrylics! and my colorful minis! 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 only titanium white or black primed canvases in different sizes and pure acrylic color.
summer colors – exhibition in weilheim july 2016. see three fresh, new paintings from my series emotional acrylics at the company stöppel in weilheim – germany. hope to meet you there.
in my new series “emotional acrylics“ i use a visibly reduced color spectrum on a titanium white or colorful primed canvas. i try to transfer the dynamic, vitality and harmony, you know from my series “colorful acrylics“, to only a few colors. in some paintings of this series i attempt to take up the special colors or color combinations of my favorite artists (see the title) and combine this with my own, personal style.
i’m inspired by the color itself and adore the purity. every color gets my attention. for each painting of my series “emotional acrylics“ i need a lot of working hours and usually a very steady hand. i paint them color by color, sometimes i use only one color tone down with white. and i love the challenge to attain presence with only one or a few simple colors.
