ABSTRACT PAINTINGS HAWAIIAN FIBRE - ABSTRAKTE BILDER NATURMATERIALIEN HAWAII
My art is a symbiosis of modern abstract art and the nature and culture of Hawai’i. All my paintings have many layers, and all include the colors of the four elements. After I was introduced to Hawaiian Fiber Art, my paintings have changed. I started to include the bark of the Wauke tree and other natural Hawaiian fibres into my abstract art. Many of my paintings are based on the old Hawaiian tradition of Kapa making. which begins with the harvest of the bark and continues through the whole process of beating the bark to get a fine kappa. For my use, I go one step further, expand the bark and change the form very intuitively until I feel a harmony in myself and a connection to the colors on the canvas. It is my desire to be a bridge between the modern abstract art and the old tradition of the Hawaiian culture.
ENERGY/SPIRITUAL PAINTINGS - ENERGIE/HEILBILDER
When I paint, something greater is flowing through me and I create with an open heart and a deep inner peace. My spirituality and my connection to nature is my main inspiration. I paint in several layers, with acrylic colors and additional materials. My paintings come into being very intuitively, with a connection to the "here and now".
CERAMIIC - Skulpturen, skulpturelle Objekte, Schalen, Vasen, Urnen
For sculptures, objects and even for my functional ceramics, I work directly with clay, wood, or other materials without a model. They come to form during the process of creating, often inspired of organic forms of nature. My vessels symbolic feminine containment, receiving, holding, nurturing, and protecting. My handbuilt ceramic vases and my sculptural ceramics have a very modern and unique style. The circles, which often appear in my work, I create with a special technique as an universal symbol with extensive meaning. They represent oneness, wholeness, original perfection, the infinite, eternity, timelessness, all cyclic movement, sun, moon - No beginning no end – the circle of life!
All my ceramics are handbuilt, glazed, high fired and food safe.
WOODEN BOWLS - HOLZSCHALEN
My wooden bowls are made from very old Swiss wood, fired in an open fire until the wood cracks to a certain point, brushed, burnished with bee wax and decorated with golden pigment paste.
