About Kirsten Handelmann
There are no upcoming events
I'm a german artist with a degree in Graphic-Design. I have worked many years in the advertising and in publishing companies, meanwhile as a freelancer.
And so the painting makes me to forget the jungle out there.
My true love is the informal art.
In my working process I'm following the unconscious. The colors are used autonomously. They are not more a means of expressions and design medium, but an autonomous image shape.
The colors give the drive for the creation. The artistic process is more important to me than a finished concept.
I'm working with a lot of layers, transparent and not transparent, I'm turning and turning the painting and let it drip.
I'm always so very concerned to have my online photos closely match the original.The hardest thing in making art is to work out a distinctive pronounced style, your own characteristic handwriting, which can only be attributed to you. That's what I'm working on any time.
You can find my works in many private collections all over the world from the United States, Canada and Costa Rica to New Zealand and Australia.
