BENDER-WUEHRL (1952 - 2005) ABOUT HER PICTURES:
invite the Viewer of my pictures to lose themselves in thoughts, to
step inside them and to linger. I try to create spaces which make
room for limitless fantasies
intention is that the pictures are open to the ambiguities of the
moods of the viewer. By blending different planes of reality, my concern
is to empower the imagination and lead the way to other possibilities
the use of colour and my preferred central perspective, I try to communicate
clarity and calm. Expanses of blue and gradual transitions represent
the dissolution of boundaries.
order to achieve the lightness and transparency of my pictures I use
the following technique: the
pigments are applied directly to the surface and not mixed with a
binding agent as with oil, tempera or watercolour painting.
special way in which the colours are reflected has the effect that
the pictures change in atmosphere according to the angle and brightness
of the light.
