The K'ai Men Gallery
An open door for an open mind
Carola Splettstoesser
Carola has been working with oils on canvas for over 30 years now and has held exhibitions in Britain and in Germany, her native country.
Since she moved to Scotland in 1992 she has shown her work in Inverness, Forres, Elgin, Findhorn and Aberdeen.
In her abstract art you will find a tendency to sculpt her shapes in a somewhat organic and sensual dance of forms that blend and contrast; colours and textures interplay and mingle or seem to overstep their boundaries.
There is a clear influence from childhood days: her father was an abstract painter, her mother a sculptress. As a journalist in her former bread-winning profession abstract art used to be a meditative way out of too much verbalising.
Nowadays, though, abstraction sometimes leads her back into figurative expression.
