Cornelia lives and paints in Munich, Germany and Imperial Beach, California. The German artist’s seemingly simplistic paintings reveal an incredible sophistication expressing her emotional experience versus physical reality. Starting late in the world of art after a successful business career, Cornelia’s paintings depict her subjective emotions and responses that arise from her personal experiences.
She has made a massive impact on the art world in a short time with her expressionist paintings.
She created and applied a New Painting Trend of Cosalien (Cosmos+alien) (Patent protect exists)
The term futurism comes from the Latin futurum (future). The artist breaks with everything she sees as obsolete and traditional. She tries to set a new art trend.
According to the futuristic artist, “art” is supposed to correspond to actual life rather than to reflect the past. Imitation of the past, whether as a theme or a motif, should be avoided, since it does not correspond to the originality and the time appropriately.
Futurism frowned upon the old beauty ideals and sought “its” beauty ideals in speed and dynamics, cosmos, alien, futurology, science. On the other hand, if we look at their new images, we see a completely different cosmos. It is a cosmos in unfolding, in constant change, an open cosmos of infinite diversity.
Cornelia travels extensively, absorbing art and architecture from the various cultures. She is an abstract painter and photographer inspired by color, pattern, texture, and light. She is not committed to a genre. A lot of ideas and concepts growing in her mind. For example, the protection of the environment and wildlife, universe and aliens, faces and eyes, landscapes and many others.
Thoughts she takes from her travels and brings them with every stroke of her brush to the canvas.
She had many exhibitions in San Diego, Coronado, Imperial Beach – California, Arizona – USA, following successful showings and exhibitions in Ensenada – Mexico, Munich – Germany, Bucharest – Romania, Florence – Italy, Calpe – Spain, Hambantota – Sri Lanka, Dubai Burj Khalifa Armani Hotel and Dubai Palm Jumeirah Island MGallery Retreat Hotel – United Arab Emirates, New York City – USA, Rome – Italy, Monte Carlo – Principality of Monaco, Finalist in The 2nd Global Art Awards Dubai Palm Jumeirah Hotel FIVE Penthouse – UAE, Kolkata West Bengal – India, and her latest exhibition was onboard Queen Elizabeth 2 in Dubai – UAE.
“I love to share my imagination and feelings through my paintings, and I am inspired by everything I encounter on this incredible journey of life.
My paintings are not finished and fixed, they change to the same extent as the thoughts. When they are finished, they continue to change according to the mood of the viewer. I do paint the things as in my flow of thoughts, not as I see them.”
