In her work, Christel Wermuth describes a journey to an unknown destination, but with recurring elements.
One will the see constant changes in her work. She works with images, which although having a similar base, can be interpreted differently.
C.W. works with multifaceted aspects. The many layers are applied swiftly and form a condensed surface which is then broken up by artistic intervention. Palette-knife and scraping techniques allow the underlying layers to form a vivid base for very distinct forms and subjects.
Throughout the entire oeuvre, bizarre objects in the form of wide and curved line segments or star-shaped and jagged forms are present.
These varied, moving and always different forms show the constant search of the artist for something new to discover. It is this restlessness that drives her.
The theme of "growth and decay", and "giving and taking" are a central motif within her work.
C.W. works are at first abstract, yet very narrative. Overall a mysterious veil covers the whole scene.
This invites the viewer in to a mysterious world that slumbers in secret.
To lift this veil is the aim of C.W.'s artistic work.
