About Elisabetta Schlegel

My paintings express the magic world of my inner being and bring my creative cosmos to the canvas - a world of mystery, dreams and wonder. This intimate realm offers a bounty of new discoveries and surprises to all those who enter it. My art is light, airy and pure.

I love playing with color, e.g. the tension between warm earth tones and fruity-fresh pastel shades; the cool contrasted with the warm. I give my colors a lot of space so that they can develop and unfold, express lightness and transparency. My art is a door to hidden inner worlds.

Happiness lies in the moment. And the moment, in its pure simplicity, is what I want to capture in my paintings. This can be expressed in soft circles of color and finely drawn lines, or in floating color-fields that hover in the painting like buoyant symbols. In their essence, my paintings strive to evoke exhilaration and playfulness, sensibility and poetry.

Enjoy my art!

Yours, Elisabetta
