"Shimmering White #8" is part of a series of small abstracts on paper: All with bright and vibrant colours - behind white. The bright colours shine through, so that the white shimmers in various shades of them. Have a look at the close ups, they give the best impression of these little shimmering white gem!
Completely painted with the palette-knife (so the paint has texture) on acrylic paper and sealed with a glossy varnish. Signed on the front and signed and dated on the back.
The size of each painting is 18 x 13 cm, with mount it is 30 x 20 cm. It is already mounted in a off white mat and ready to frame (comes without frame, the frame in the photograph ist just an example!).
18 x 13 x 0,2 cm | 7.1 x 5.1 x 0.1 in (without mount)
30 x 20 x 0,2 cm | 11.8 x 7.9 (with mount)

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.
