This German artist paints pictures via a method of slow discovery allowing the story to emerge gradually;
"In a world where we hardly find time to rest,
I try to offer what many people long for -
visual places where time appears to run slower.
That's why I am creating Slow Art. The art of deceleration."
Her style is somewhere between abstract and figurative, depending on how far the imagination of the viewer is willing to go. She is working with layers of paint. A process of showing and hiding parts of the paintings history.
"Usually I paint with spatulas and sponges. I love to lift lower layers of paint by sanding and scratching the surface to finally discover a figure - or just some shapes. This is the moment when the painting gets alive and it tells me a story."
