2019, Oil on canvas, 150 x 150 x 2 cm
"This painting comes from 2019, and the whole series of my recent works, where I decided to compose elements directly on the white surface of the canvas.
The domination of line elements gives me the „pureness”, directness and volatility of a drawing. Although in this case they're also contrasted with the bigger painted areas, which bring balance to the smaller elements.
Before every bigger work I create many sketches to control the frame of the composition, but the actual painting is always building up in the head. You can see on this one, that there are almost no overpainted areas. What happens on the surface of the canvas I treat as a „controlled accident”, so the elements appear intuitionally, but the final composition is not random, although the forms are distributed in an unexpected way.
The improvisation and intuitional way of working on canvas is also inspired by the idea of „the power of now” which was explained by a contemporary philosopher Eckhart Tolle in the book of the same title. He is describing there the concept of Here and Now and how through living in the moment you can find the happiness and satisfaction in your life."
About the artist
In her painting practice she continues to explore the possibilites of her visual language, where the creating process is an effect of a pictorial thinking based on a free improvisation.
