The German artist Veronika Spleiss, whose roots lie in Estonia and Russia, has been working with visual fine arts for more than fifteen years. During many years of lessons with the artist Natalia Zurakowska, she learned the techniques of painting, graphics, and illustration. After studying French and Russian literature as well as a political theory in Munich, Clermont-Ferrand and Passau, she turned her attention to artistic creation as a whole, which produced and continues to produce her series "Following the black line", "-Life" and "Paths".
The chaotic element of her artistic work is not quite understood by chaos, as the viewer would initially think. In fact, the first glance is an intoxicating celebration of shapes and colors, whose only unifying feature is the black outline of the paintings. At second glance, however, white and colorful fragments reveal associative, concise forms of reality - and, on a meta-level, their stories.
The paintings are in the obvious sign of chaos, but they have an inherent order and harmony that only emerges on further contemplative viewing. So it is with life itself. If life can all too often appear chaotic, it has its structures in all its facets and perspectives. The paintings of the artist Veronika Spleiss illustrate this process in a two-dimensional style, but due to their variety of forms, they stand for a multi-perspective opening to life.
Each of the works by Veronika Spleiss joins together to form a visual story. The artist writes down her thoughts and ideas about each work.
