museum of art: series colorful acrylics by astrid stöppel january 2017
weilheimer tagblatt: astrid stöppel im porträt january 2017
astrid stöppel is a german abstract artist. one of her styles is so pure in form and color and always catches my attention. they are simple canvases of colored lines and patterns, very controlled, yet free-flowing. it is very difficult for any abstract artist to produce consistency of lines like this, a steady hand and eye are required. her artworks are highly collectible and vibrant with color that accommodates many living spaces.
astrid has experimented with several mediums, such as oil pigment sticks, watercolor and ink. acrylics tend to be her preferred medium. working in primarily two different styles, the “colorful acrylics” we’ve seen above. The other series “fluid acrylics” comes from a raw emotional place when she paints. she uses a special technique to create the effect on paper.
