Daniela Schweinsberg is a representative of the informal, gestural abstraction. Her works are powerful, colorful and challenging for the viewer. Often the gestural moment dominates the entire rhythm of the artwork. She receives inspiration for her works from many different sources - sometimes it is the color or the material itself that appeals to her, but she also processes the most diverse impressions of her environment and nature.
Starting from the first idea, the images are then created in an intensive dialogue between the artist and the work. In the process, the image itself, its change, its expression, becomes the determining factor of the painting process, whereby the original idea can also take a back seat. Daniela’s painting process is a mixture of impulsiveness and considered approach. The finished works radiate a great deal of energy, the dynamics and spontaneity of the painting process is transferred to the viewer.
The materials used (almost all paintings of the artist are created in mixed media) support this approach, since the interaction of the different substances (eg acrylic paint with spray or ink) is always experimental. In doing so, the artist also teases the contrasts resulting from the mix of materials - she often works on raw canvas or linen, which she consciously uses in their natural state, to incorporate the natural structure and color as an integral part of the painting.
