In her colour-intensive, brightly coloured paintings, Katrin Kampmann takes us into the imagination of a world of our own. The works draw their life from an ballanced interplay between abstraction and figuration, which challenges us as viewers to let our own fantasies become part of the composition of the picture. Light and flowing, the thin colours pour onto the surface of the painting and are guided by the artist into new directions.Katrin Kampmann proves herself through her unique painting technique and the process of finding a new kind of imagery.
