BANU GROTE #PAINTING
THE GREEN / THE PLANT / THE DREAM / DER TREFFPUNKT / THE CIRCLE / BABA YAGA / ENKIDU /...
The expression of my painting has its deep roots in my consciousness and in mystical art.
Art has never been for me a superficial appearance of reality; it is a subtle and ongoing dialogue of the mystery that expresses itself through the creation.
This experience of the inner worlds transmitted through the symbolic shapes like voids and circles using different materials like sand, organic elements found in nature, wax, gypsum, fabric which leaves my consciousness, my spirit in spontaneous action.
I know that the artist by creating his works can lead the spectator towards spiritual, mystical worlds guessed, felt by the interior conscience... It is a responsibility¡
When I start a job, a dialogue is established with the materials: they speak to me, they have their own language and prosody and from there a dialogue is combined between me and the materials.
Then begins a type of struggle between the idea that I wish to express and the constraints of the "material" form that I want to give it.
The development and changes are dictated or submitted by the materiality, the very vision of this work.
Thus everything becomes an unavoidable dialogue between the original idea, born from everyday sensation and the materials....
BANU GROTE #PAINTING
As a child, Banu Grote already painted...
In her parents' house, there were always colors and materials that fascinated her from an early age.
The inspiration of his current works extracts the artist from ancient myths and hidden recesses of the human soul.
She feels a deep connection with nature and creates a picturesque dialogue between nature and the psyche.
For Banu Grote, art has a function, it is an instrument for people and a language with which artists and viewers can exchange ideas about souls.
This is why the artist uses themes and materials such as leaves, tree bark, sand, earth, fabric or dust, associated with nature.
She lets her instincts guide her while painting, allowing her gestures, materials and subconscious to flow into the creative process.
Banu Grote has exhibited his works at exhibitions in New York (USA), Izmir and Istanbul (Turkey).
