Like Fish in Water
No doubt, it is a difficult moment in the global context, even so, we feel privileged and with a source of encouragement and enrichment for the creativity of all those present. It's no wonder we are all amazed by the colorful works of Falk and Sadler. Color, in itself, is a haven for them. Through color, they come together and present their latest creations under the title "Like Fish in Water". Thus, they immerse themselves and swim with themselves in each painting. All paintings have many rhythms, different forms with clear directions, others, with breaks and twists.
Martina Falk and Helen Sadler have a lot to do with each other as they breathe and live on the enigmatic island of Ibiza. They have been impregnated with it and, thus, they can express it. We are pleased to enjoy it.
I start my paintings intuitively, in a spontaneous play with colors and shapes.
Step by step and oftentimes in many layers, I develop further what shows on the canvas at the moment, thus creating color- intensive, dream-like soul landscapes, sometimes populated by surrealistic looking figures.
My concern is to reflect the beauty and magic of this world in my paintings. I want to convey a positive feeling to the viewer and at the same time awaken your own fantasy and sensuality. My adopted home Ibiza inspires me continuously through its bright colors, the Mediterranean nature, and its very own spirit.
I mostly paint with acrylic on canvas, using not only brushes but everything from a used credit card to a toothbrush or even my bare hands - according to the motto "no rules" - allowed is what brings the fun.
