Ewa Martens 

Artist Statement

I aim to search for bright lights and expressive colours in my paintings, as I try to express my feelings through art. Therefore I want the observer to recognise the strength of textures and intense shades to evoke new feelings and thoughts. Throughout my artistic life, I have developed various techniques to accomplish the transformation from thought into paint. I belive my artworks can be surprisingly mawkish bur sincere and honest at the same time due to varying composition styles. Abstractions are my soul´s journey and painting is the foundation of my life; it gives me the power to move on and the calm to rest in myself. I rarely plan a painting in advance. During the creative process I focus on spontaneity and intuition. There is an intensive, sensual communication between the painting and me, which is essential for the work I create. Also I continuosly try to reinvent myself whilst looking for new forms of expressions and various perspectives that could inspire me. The basis of my painting consists of curiosity and strength to discover life with an open attitude. EWA
