Ana H. del Amo. Colours between the lines

Uncategorized December 4, 2016

Ana H. del Amo is a Spanish artist (Cáceres, 1977) interested in the study of form, movement, and texture. Her wooden and metal pieces could be described as sensorial sculptural paintings because of the vividness they express through colour. Her artworks breathe life. We feel their corporality due to their liberation from the flatness of the canvas. Ana H. del Amo’s work is an invitation to experience art in a ludic way, pleasing the eye, but at the same time asking for reflection and time.

Interview with Annekatrin Lemke: “Art encourages us to think and rethink about life”

Uncategorized November 8, 2016

Annekatrin Lemke (1980) is a German freelance artist known for her colorful ‘sculptural paintings‘ made out of wood. Abstraction, geometry, and powerful colors usually combined by a neutral white, meet in a three dimensional space of wooden relief. She studied wood design at the Academy Of Applied Art in Schneeberg, and currently she lectures at sculpting workshops and teaches future “master” wood-carvers. Her creations have been exhibited in Brussels, Karlsruhe, Liechtenstein, Erfurt and Suhl.

 I contacted Annekatrin to ask her some questions about her work and the meaning of art, here is what she told me. Hope you enjoy her words and her beautiful pieces!

How much can we learn from ourselves through art?

Art encourages the viewer as well as the artist to think and rethink about life at all, about memories as well as future plans, about how to live, how to communicate and how to see. Yes, by dealing with art you get a more complex and precise view of what surrounds us.

Where do you find beauty?

Beauty is everywhere around us. I find beauty in the nature as well as in the city and especially in art, architecture, music, literature, fashion and human relationships.

What kind of feelings do you wish to communicate with your artworks?

I think this is open to the personality of the viewer. I like the different perceptions and the discussion about the artworks!

A fictional character that inspires you.

Honestly, I’m more inspired by other artists- sculptors, painters and photographers-, as well as musicians and actors. There’s such a great amount of inspiring artists to focus on! I like for example Agnes Martin, Frank Stella, Imi Knoebel, Giorgio Morandi and Rachel Whiteread.
