The artist Veronika Spleiss with Estonian and Russian roots is interested in visual arts since more than fifteen years. At the Painting school by Natalia Zurakowska in Munich, she learned the techniques in painting, graphic and illustration which gave her a broad understanding of art. After her intellectual studies in French and Russian literature and political theory in Munich, Clermont-Ferrand and Passau Veronika Spleiss has dedicated herself to artistic creation that brings her to the series "FOLLOWING THE BLACK LINES".
A viewer of the paintings by Veronika Spleiss once has said: "It reminds me of a tidy chaos". He meant the interaction of order and chaos. The black oil and acrylic paint surrounds the artwork to the edges and gives the painting something immersing and deep. Out of the black paint, forms of white, gold and bright colours come to the surface and bring the deepness to substance. So the two-dimensionality enables a sharper focus and reveals structures which seemed to be gone.
Therefore the chaotic elements of her works are not that taken by chaos as it might seem for the viewer. Indeed the first glimpse on the painting is an overwhelming celebration of forms and colours and its single common feature is the black edging of the paintings. But the second glimpse, out of the white and colourful fragments, discloses associative forms of the reality and on the meta level their tales.
