SLOW ART by DORIS DUSCHELBAUER

 

"In a world where we hardly find time to rest, I try to offer what many people long for:
visual places where time seems to slow down. 

That's why I am creating:

Slow Art. The art of deceleration."

 

 

Doris Duschelbauer is a German artist who lives on the Spanish Island Majorca. After her studies she was travelling for a long period through North and South America what gave her a better understanding of the diversity of culture and environment. In this special time of her life she also worked with different artists in their studios till she found her own style of painting. Important places for her were Mexico, New York and especially Montreal in Canada, where she lived for more than 3 years.

 

Once back to Europe she finally found the right place to settle down on this Mediterranean Island Majorca, where the sea, the light and the warm climate animates her to create these bright and light-flooded paintings. Her style is somewhere between abstract and figurative, depending on how far the imagination of the viewer is willing to find his own meaning within the work by looking inward the layers of paint that are put, scratched away and are put back again. A process of showing and hiding parts of the paintings history.

"Usually I paint with spatulas and sponges. I love to lift lower layers of paint by sanding and scratching the surface to finally discover a figure -mostlysome female shapes. This is the moment when the painting gets alive and it tells me a story."

Doris Duschelbauer took part in International exhibitions. Her work is in private collections in New York, Canada, Norway, Germany, Switzerland, Spain and Austria.
