Innsbruck, Austria

Innsbruck

Painting: “Innsbruck" 2011 (70 x 70cm, acrylic on canvas)

A few years ago, I was traveling by train from Zurich, Switzerland to Innsbruck, Austria…as always, I was sleeping (almost snoring hehe)…but suddenly, I woke up, just to discover one of the most amazing landscapes I’ve ever seen in my life…it was the Eastern Alps…

How can I describe the mountain peaks covered with snow??? Just magical!… So, I couln’t sleep anymore and I spent the next hours just admiring the fabulous view.


After arriving in Innsbruck, I went to one of the highest points and got an amazing view as the one you can see in the following picture.

(And now to the point) …

How was this painting inspired? Well, when you see the colorful row of houses and the incredible mountains as a background, you have only two choices, to cry tears of joy or to be inspired to create something, in my case, I experienced both…

Who is Elvira Bach???

I_Have_found_my_second_earring

Painting: "I have found my second earring"

2013 (100 cm x 100 cm, acrylic on canvas)

 
If you google her, you'll find this:

WIKIPEDIA: Elvira Bach (born 22 June 1951 in Neuenhain, Germany) is a postmodernist German painter known for her colorful images of women. A member of the Junge Wilde art movement, she lives and works in Berlin.

(Seriously?)….. Is that all the information you can get from her in Wikipedia? But why? If she is a very famous artist at least Wikipedia should have more info…

(Well, well, well)…..Today's intention is to give you three amazing links about Elvira's art.

This is her web page, where you can find her art work, sculptures, her sketch book, and more about her exhibitions.

Sketch: "I have found my second earring"

2013 (21.59 cm x 27.94 cm, acrylic on canvas)

 

“I always thought art meant renouncing things. But art is just the opposite. For a long time, my paintings were something like my children. But then, when I really became a mother, it was an overwhelming experience of an entirely different kind. I only took the plunge, though, after I was already able to live off my work” (Elvira Bach's interview by Brigitte Werneburg, 2002, Deutsche Bank)

During the creative work in my room

“The art market has its own laws. In my case, success turned up unexpectedly and I wasn’t prepared for it. It’s a real challenge, both in a positive and negative sense, standing up to all this pressure of success that one is constantly being subjected to. It costs a huge amount of energy and belief, and above all else, you realize that you have to motivate yourself” (Elvira Bach's interview by Brigitte Werneburg, 2002, Deutsche Bank)

 

See you next week!

The Beginning; Expect the Unmexpected ArtBlog

Im_Glad_you_came

Painting: "I´m glad you came" 2011 (70 cm x 70 cm, acrylic on canvas)

 

Hi everyone!!

Welcome to my ArtBlog EXPECT THE UNMEXPECTED…..

But what is it about???

Well, we are connected in so many forms and sometimes these ways are evident enough to see them, BUT MOST OF THE TIME they catch us distracted and that is why we see them as unexpected.

Let's consider that the Universe is always telling us "I SEE YOU" and "YOU´RE IMPORTANT TO ME"…..

So, unexpectedly today you ended reading this…But why? I don't know, maybe you were just curious, maybe you needed to get distracted from work, but the point is you are here and I hope you enjoy the following postings!

Now, would you dare to share something UNEXPECTED that has happened to you???

And don't forget that "I SEE YOU"…
