Paintings for a new future

kari bienert

Oil painting has been my passion for over 30 years. Colours come together to form language and shape from a lucid, kaleidoscopic inner world. I am fascinated by the endless revolving rhythms found in the natural world.

I am drawn to relationships between colours and people, nature, and space. Colours and shapes are a universal unspoken language that can be interpreted on an energetic level. It is here in the studio absorbed in the paint and music; I merge with a parallel world. I find an evolution, a shift which directly affects the tapestry of relationships around me.

My painting process is slow and meditative, mixing oil colours methodically for many hours. Most colours are a complex mix of over 20 oils to produce a single unique colour. It is then applied to the canvas flatly with a brush. The thicker paint, after mixing is applied meticulously with a long bristle brush. The works take months and the painting over time becomes a meditation for the soul.
