The German artist Veronika Spleiss, born 1993 in Tallinn, whose roots lie in Estonia and Russia, has been working with visual fine arts for more than fifteen years. During many years of lessons with the artist Natalia Zurakowska, she learned the techniques of painting, graphics and illustration. After studying French and Russian literature as well as political theory in Munich, Clermont-Ferrand and Passau, she turned her attention to artistic creation as a whole, which produced and continues to produce her series "Following the black line", "Life Series" and "Paths". Veronika Spleiss lives and works in Munich and Passau.
The first glance at her artistic work is an intoxicating celebration of shapes and colors, whose only unifying feature is the black outline of the paintings. At second glance, however, white and colorful fragments reveal associative, concise forms of reality - and, on a meta-level, their stories.
The paintings are in the obvious sign of chaos, but they have an inherent order and harmony that only emerges on further contemplative viewing. So it is with life itself. If life can all too often appear chaotic, it has its structures in all its facets and perspectives. The paintings of the artist Veronika Spleiss illustrate this process in a two-dimensional style, but due to their variety of forms they stand for a multi-perspective opening to life.
In the spirit of Friedrich Nietzsche, the aspect of perspective is shown as the "basic condition of all life" (JGB, KSA 5, p. 12). Because life encompasses a whole. But man himself has no access to it. The living person is always bound to its own perspective and view of the world, which has a certain order of its own. The artists plays with these aspects. What's more, she tries to visualize life graphically in its versatile perspectives. For the viewer, this primarily means chaos - a supposedly chaotic combination of different points of view that emerge from black or rather nothingness. Each particle, each geometric form stands on its own, but approaches the other forms and thus establishes a necessary connection. In the end, the work becomes a panorama of a city, a combination of houses, people, stairs with their own order: an order of perspectives.
Each of the works by Veronika Spleiss joins together to form a visual story. The artist writes down her thoughts and ideas about each work.
