An Artist's Palette

Fascinating how artists' palettes look like! I had the opportunity to have a look into some studios last weekend, when "auf AEG" opened the door. Palettes are the abstracts of any (painting) artist's images - because they only contain the colors of their images! And sometimes not even that: because the process of creating the color of an image is often done on the canvas and not on the palette.
Anyway I was intrigued by the palette of Anna Bittersohl and gave it a try: one of the colors alone and one showing them in the context of painting with brushes in the foreground. Still pretty abstract.

If you're interested in what Anna Bittersohl produced with those colors visit her website and go to her work from 2012.

And visit "auf AEG"!

If you're into modern art and live in the vicinity of Nuremberg/Erlangen/Fürth you should visit "auf AEG" until October 7th the latest. We spent 6 hours last Sunday because the studios of the artists were open and still did not see everything: Gigantic!
Some of the artists are into photography but I found that also many modern painters can give us photogs some relevant and interesting view on ... well, viewing, and abstracticism!
There's also a photographic exhibition just across the street "auf Quelle" about the "Waldrand" (the edges and borders of woods/forests). I'm certainly going to visit this one as trees and woods are one of my most favorite subjects. And it's open until October 20th.
So hurry while you can ;-)
Here's the website to tell you everything about "auf AEG"
