Master of Contrast Painting |
Joy and Power, Tension and Energy |
Beate Blume is an artist from the Lower Rhine area. She uses brilliant, vigorous colours and strong contrasts in her paintings. Simplified - often geometric - shapes and repetitive elements give a unique rhythm to her paintings.
The contours of the subjects remain mostly naturalistic. To increase the colours' impact she uses extensive forms.
The high purity of the colours makes the paintings appear to be flooded with light. The vivid colours exude joy and power. Strong contrasts create tension and energy. Despite these contrasts her works express a harmonious unity radiating a deep joy of life.
