She finds a building, a piece of nature… and when she’s touched by an underlying mystery she paints it. Carola Schapals (°1954) is a German painter dividing her time between Bremen and Spain.
I have been admiring her paintings for some time but the works she made in 2015 are particularly gorgeous.
Her technique in her own words:
“My style of painting changes between controlled and experimental – sometimes happily flowing and then again searching in agony. Shifting between paintbrush and pens I like to draw and scribble whole partitions of my pictures. Later these will partly be painted over again. Objective parts of my paintings I dissolve into darknesses, or into continuos abstractions.”
The exhibition “Nieuwe gezichten op Dordrecht” at Dordrecht Museum includes works by Carola Schapals. 13 contemporary artists were invited to express their vision on the city, on view from 18 Oct 15 till 21 Feb 16 in Dordrecht, The Netherlands.
