CLAUDIA LARISSA ARTZ
Claudia Larissa Artz is a German artist who lives and works in Cologne. She undertook her art studies at the Kunstakadamie Düsseldorf, graduating as a Meisterschülerin ('master apprentice') of Swiss abstract artist, Prof. Helmut Federle. In the intervening decade, Artz has continued to evolve her own philosophy of the form in abstraction. Her work is informed by a serious and continuous quest to resolve the aesthetic duality of line versus surface, and the search for universal forms that express belief (Glauben) and affirmation (Bekenntnis).
Artz’s delicately textured application of pigments, eggtempera and watercolour reference the emotional aspects of life: organic, individual, unpredictable, difficult to predetermine and control. We may have preconceptions about how we will react to an event, but we can never really know our emotional responses until we are in the midst of them, and then, it is not always easy to control them. There always exists a tension between our conscious will (mind) and our emotional reactions (heart). It is also this conflict between exerting and ceding control that is defines Artz's process.
