Claudia Ebbing, Velen-Ramsdorf (DE) – Paintings; children’s pictures
I move between the basic themes of human existence: fear-grief-transience-happiness.
The basis of my work are memories, old photos, newspapers as well as own pictures.
There are traces of thought from childhood and youth of different generations.
Nature symbolizes space. She acts as a great sublime and gives protection and peace.
Time restricts, pretends, involves the human being as a factor of a time machine. Both elements melt together, partially obscuring the moment, the actual reality of the memories and creating a very own poetic reality.
The levels shift, what is in the foreground can be in the background in the next moment.
Gimmicks with transparency and opacity up to abstraction.
