The pace of modern life accelerates more every day. Most people live in stressful „passing by“ without taking the time to appreciate the beauty around us. With my art, I want to give the viewer a moment of mindfulness, a rest, with memories of how beautiful life is.
Delicate mandalas with spiritual and contemplative patterns in glimmering shades of metallic colors illuminate spaces from the walls, alongside expressive abstract pain-tings and African- style pieces inspired by folk art you can‘t pigeonhole Natalia Schäfer. The work of the autodidact, as Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design, who was born in Russia and has lived in Germany for many years, is as multi-faceted as the techniques she has developed.
She uses materials such as genuine gold, silver, and copper to perfect her paintings. Driven on by a profound appreciation of aesthetics, her gifts to the viewer are instances of beauty and relaxation in our often hectic everyday lives. „With my art, I would like to give people a brief respite, time to pause for a moment, in order to enable them to see once again how beautiful life and the natural world are.“
