While working on this paintings ("Listen to the Colours" is a series), I thought about people who are known as synesthetes. That means that the stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second. So synesthetes - for example - look at a colour or painting and translate this into sound or reverse: see colours when they hear music. I'm not a synesthet, but the idea of how my paintings would sound or what song would have the colours of my paintings, was fascinating!
"Listen to the Colour #3" is a bold, punchy and edgy artwork. It is bright and colourful with white, orange, green, blue, turquoise, pink... in several tones. Painted on self stretched linen canvas with a transparent priming; due to the transparent priming the natural colour of the linen is part of the painting.
Acryclic on linen canvas. Signed on the front and signed and dated on the back.
Sealed with a professional varnish (Lascaux) for protection and to optimize the colours.
160 x 105 x 2 cm | 63 x 41.3 x 0.8 in.
As mentioned before, "Listen to the Colour" is a series. The other paintings match perfectly, as an example see one of the close ups that shows "Listen to the Colour" 1 - 3. Please notice, that this offer is only for "Listen to the Colour #3".

I find my inspirations in colours and materials - for example in a beautiful deep turquoise mountain lake or in the washed-out grey of concrete in a city. Based on such impressions and inspirations I commence my work and my artwork often comes to life in little series. Each painting is unique and the creation and development of each painting is a time consuming and slow process, usually lasting many weeks and in some cases up to a few months.
My paintings are acrylic mix paintings, for example, acrylic paint with charcoal, oil pastels, pencils, spray paint and many other artistic materials. I often combine these materials with natural materials and objects from nature (e.g., leaf seeds) as well as with ash, sand or building materials such as grout or plaster.
My pieces of art are created informally. Each step builds on the previous step, leaving room for chance but also for corrections and erasures, until the final finished artwork has evolved as a composition of colour, shape, texture and surface.
Due to the complexity of my paintings and the interplay of (collage) materials, my works are not simply one-dimensional, rather they entice the viewer not just to explore them with their eyes but also to touch them.
My works of art are informal; they are my personal expressions of my experiences and impressions and each piece of art is truly unique and only one of its kind.
