Portrait

ELISA SCHAAR

Since 1975 I have been experimenting with various painting techniques. From 1999 on I paint with acrylic on canvas using spatulas, trowels and wipers as instruments.

These instruments I use in a targeted manner in order to direct colors, textures and layers for achieving the planned dialectic.

I am working in the style of the abstract expressionism. During the painting process I develop my expression of transformed sensory and psychical energy in a dialog with colors, shapes and structures. This procedure happens by an intuitive interaction between internal dynamic and abstraction in the external expression.

The artworks are reflecting vitality and vigor, profundity and intensity, frequently combined with floating airiness, with poesy and magic in abstraction.
