About the artist

Barbara Stratmann is a German abstract artist, born 1972, living and working in Neuss, North Rhine-Westphalia.

Finding inspiration in nature, Barbara’s work is translating her emotions into shapes, textures and colors. Striving for depth and intensity, she is using multiple layers of paint, grainy or rough textures, embracing the beauty of decay by including rust or cracked structures in her paintings.

Statement

Quoting the great Pablo Picasso: “I begin with an idea. And then it becomes something else.”
The perfectionist in me usually has got an idea how I want to start, and sometimes I even do sketches to which I try to stick to when starting a new project, but ever so often, over time, the painting takes over and seems to create itself, layer by layer, creating depth and intensity in the process.
That’s when the magic happens: when you as an artist let go, let your emotions speak through paint and pastes, and just let things happen on the canvas. That’s when the best elements of a painting are born!
