My paper artworks

Interview with Gerda Ritzmann

1.      Please tell us something about your background and your art journey so far.

I am fascinated by nature, which spreads out before me in abundance and inspires me with its inexhaustible forms, structures and colors. These impressions are transformed in the studio, often leaving their origins barely recognizable.

2.     Can you tell us more about the theme in your art and your inspiration?

Papers and cartons are recycled in multiple variations to stimulate the visual senses through the contrasting play of paint, colour, cut and dismembered materials to create to a new form that expresses the power of pure research into intellectually   stimulating visual expression.These creative processes are very labour intensive and intellectually demanding, with questions of the basic meaning of life. Life itself involved from the everyday happenings, comings and goings, the line up of days and time which draw the lines of life, that leave behind the scars and notches that others read as fiction. The heights and defeats, happy and sad moments from living together with man being, the loneliness, the love of nature, and all my thoughts can be seen in my works for there.

3.  Is the artist life lonely? Please share your thoughts and experiences.

Maybe it's lonely, but I don't feel lonely, I'm creative.

4. What are you working on at the moment and are there any upcoming events you would like to talk about?

I have just finished the work “Quiet words” 60 x 60cm. My next exhibition participation is: 10th International Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius 2024in Vilnius "To Be" 24 May – 1 July 2024.
