DRIBBBLE X ELLO: Make Good @ello @elloart
Rudolf Steiner's idea that thoughts are powers strengthens me in the struggle of creating and transmitting the (ever-changing) core of my art. The art I create represents a quest to the self. This self is developing every day and is therefore in state of flux rather than it is constant.
The watercolour is vivid and aesthetically liable images that sometimes disguise an atrabilious element. Mental vulnerability and transience are central themes in the work. The multiple layers in the paintings create an elusive form . Like light, the works are simultaneously fleeting and present. This corresponds with my perception of paintings as breathing organisms. This is why they are not made as mere artistic statements, but originate from a sincerely felt inner necessity. I search for shapes that intrigue and convince me. In my portraits I do not paint faces, but heads, which creates a different sense of intimacy. I see the face as a structured spatial order covering the head, which houses the soul.
I don;t work towards mimesis but towards a possible temporary essence of the portrayed, which is often introspective and removed. The transparency of the layers of paint creates discolorations on the surface. The aqueous spots the deform the shape of the heads approach that what is inside, the intimacy of the sitter's spirit.
