I AM AN ARTIST

Barbara Fritsche is an artist with a passion to create. Drawing the nude human form at two years old she knew her destiny was to be an Artist.   Her work varies from large expansive nudes, contemporary still-lifes, and thoughtful portraits, to massive social commentaries.  One favorite topic, nudes, addresses both the vulnerability and strength of the female, as goddess, mother, lover. Using the form figuratively, but also abstractly as a metaphor, she creates landscapes of bodies, honoring “Mother Earth,” and that also pays homage to the power of women, as the foundation of life and the force behind the spiritual growth of humanity.

Its about where it comes from and how we get it…what we do to get it… how we value it all!

From cave paintings to present, capturing  the figure, a timeless source of inspiration, a subject that will never die has been preserved in countless creations. Drawing it, painting it, capturing  movement, sexuality, passion, emotion, spirit….whether its line, color, form  the composition, endless  is ,  caravanning together, fueled by current insanity of life problems. A challenge always,  blending past and present.

 

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

Barbara Fritsche’s art is an passionate exploration of how she perceive any given situation, inspired by questions of belonging, stagnation and perseverance. Her topic, nudes, addresses both the vulnerability and strength of the female, as goddess, mother, lover. Using the form figuratively, but also abstractly as a metaphor, she creates landscapes of bodies, honoring “Mother Earth,” and that also pays homage to the power of women, as the foundation of life and the force behind the spiritual growth of humanity.

Her current works address the surreal, intangible world of social media, memories, dreams and relationships, embracing the beautiful, bizarre, and melancholic.  She is driven to produce meditations on life, both from a real-time perspective, and a time–lapse notion, a slice of everyday existence, that brings to a head the trials of life as we know it.

If existence is but a card game, is a moment of decision an eternity in the blink of an eye?
