My art for me is a celebration: light, color, and form are all there as a declaration, not of just what exists for me in the moment, but what might be possible in the next. My works deliberately contain an abstraction growing out of everything around me, whether it is language, memory, or my perception of something I happen to witness in a certain instant. Everything I see, hear, and feel is a source of inspiration I use to create an invitation for the viewer to look in on my imagination, and through the door leading just beyond it, into their own.
Born in Nuremberg, Germany, 1959.
Lives and works in Munich, Germany.
With works in some of the world's most prestigious museums, as well as public and private collections in Asia, Europe, and the United States, German-born artist Friederike Oeser is known for her oil pastels, silkscreens, plexiglas cut-outs and sculptures. Praise for her work comes from every sector of the globe, with gallerists and collectors celebrating her ability to “create timeless combinations of energy, shape, and color that invariably delight, while being immediately accessible to the viewer.”
