in my series famous colors i use a visibly reduced color spectrum on a titanium white or colorful primed canvas. i try to transfer the dynamic, vitality and harmony, you know from my series colorful acrylics, to only a few colors. in all paintings of this series i attempt to take up the special colors or color combinations of my favorite artists (see the title) and combine this with my own, personal style.
i’m inspired by the color itself and adore the purity. every color gets my attention. for each painting of my series famous colors i need a lot of working hours and usually a very steady hand. i paint them color by color, sometimes i use only one color tone down with white. and i love the challenge to attain presence with only one or a few simple colors.
my message? the time is moving so fast and our mind is strongly influenced by the media and social media. i would like, that people stop their thoughts for a moment, calm down, start to follow the lines, go along with the circles, look at the dots and color fields in my works and feel the vibrancy and attraction of pure colors.
