"Following the black Lines"

Oil and Acrylic Paintings

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.
