Art Gallery Pictura
Gallery for contemporary realism
My art is
about desire, the desire to show through an feminine style how women can see
themselves if they choose. This idea stands in complete opposition to the
proletarian and rather masculine art of East Germany where I grew up. This has
become a visual response to my early life experience: like a gesture of
artistic liberation. My paintings aim to fulfil a quest for beauty and luxury,
which I was denied when growing up in Eastern Europe.
I started my
arts life by taking life-drawing classes at 17 and have since developed an
intense interest in several techniques of drawing, in the human shape,
particularly the female form. It has taken me almost 40 years to realize my
calling in life and become a full time artist.
work, I have a strong desire to portray everyday women in a glamorous way. My
models come from all walks of life, but on canvass they get to be superstars,
divas, temptresses, goddesses and heroines. I particularly want woman to feel
good about themselves, through my art. I want to show the world how beautiful
they are. I want people to feel the love and tenderness that I have for my
subjects in every drawing/painting.
