Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

In this painting I explore the idea of memories drifting in and out of awareness, floating in our interior sea. I enjoyed playing with shapes, values and colour in relationship to each other painting layer over layer until I felt the painting was complete. Beautiful hues of blue, yellow, green and lilac combine in varying degrees of lightness and opaqueness. I used artist pigments and fine china paper that I dyed and built up in layers.

The canvas has been painted around the edges in a complementary colour. Hooks and cord are attached at the back - the painting is ready for hanging.

The painting is a little bit lighter in hue than the camera captured.

The painting comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Please note that the image of the painting in a home interior is for demonstration purposes only and not to scale.

Artist Profile

Born: 1965

Hometown: Aachen, Germany

Based in: London

My background as an artist is somewhat unusual. I graduated from King's College London with a BA German and followed this with MSt in European Literature at St Cross College, University of Oxford, in 1992. My first love has always been the written word. Over the years I developed a strong interest in the world of therapy having studied psychoanalytic readings of texts as part of my MSt. I started studying for a Counselling degree and completed an MA Integrative Counselling in 2009 followed by further courses in the field of psychotherapy and counselling. Both literature and psychotherapy continue to inform my work as an artist. While I never formally studied art I had been exploring different forms of expression - beyond language - for several years. The world of therapy opened up an exploration of the unconcious processes that painting helped me to access. The other, most obvious, connection between the profession of therapist and artist is the preoccupation with emotions. In my therapeutic work I talk about emotions; in my art I aim to translate emotions into visual markers on canvas.

Much of my earlier and more recent work is influenced by my psychotherapy training; the pieces were concerned with memories and dreams peeling away at them layer by layer. The other, constant focus of inspiration for me is the natural world which I return to at regular intervals in my work. More recently I started to be more pre-occupied with the internal world again. As a child I was fascinated by maps, copying the contours of continents and colouring in the different countries. In my latest work I am returning to this childhood love by painting imaginary maps of external and internal worlds, taking us to places that are "not down on any map; true places never are.” (Herman Melville, Moby Dick)

Each of my pieces is unique and takes time develop. I aim to lend as much ‘feel’ to my paintings as possible, ‘controlling’ the painting as much as possible while also allowing for more spontaneity and risk by applying paint in a variety of ways: smudging, scraping, flicking, squeezing and rubbing paint onto the canvas, scratching paint off and re-starting the process.

My work has been sold to art collectors internationally with many returning customers.
