For celebrating Love, Life, friendship and extravagance !
"Art is transformation" Art is the purpose of art as love is the purpose of love. “Heinrich Heine Ines Hildur starts her paintings intuitively, without any preconceived programme. From the subconscious things occur, which she cannot predetermine. The artist does not convert these inner pictures to specific things. With a special feeling for rhythm and through subtitle color sounds she tells about free, associative picture stories. The works exude tranquility, clarity and sensuality. The visible aesthetic sensitivity has a suggestive power, which captivates the observer. If you get involved in these pictures – in the colored moods, the symbolic, fragile lines, symbols – they appear to be the beginning of a story, which the observer can continue in his imagination. At the trans-lation into the terms of language, however, something mysterious remains, which cannot be translated. The painter apparently leaves the processes for the creation of the painting: color layers overlay each other, lines are covered and released again, used papers are stuck onto the work. The artist describes her way of painting like this: “violations at places of change are connected, sewed, covered in a varnishing way, shine through like under a wax layer or can still haptically be realized. Special importance is attached to the picture passages, which appear to be particularly successful, they support their environment – are significant for fringe areas, however, can also lose their function again during the working process and have to be given up – sometimes this is quite painful like the loss of a good friend. “She discovers special beauty in apparently everyday things. This can be a crumbling wall, moss between concrete slabs, traces of transience. Due to this special talent of perception the artist converts her impressions to compact pictures, which sometimes remind me of releasing layers, preserving a certain state, which could quickly disappear: also the forms of cocoon are ambiguous, a cocoon for wrapping something up, giving protection and security – or are they projectiles reaching new shores? In an environment of over-stimulation the artist wants to train our ability of perception to see things in a new way. For several years she has been communicating the interrelation between painting and seeing at the private art school Wameling Richon in Baden near Zurich. The painter and architect Ines Hildur – this is her pseudonym – belongs to the cross-border artists, to whom one attributes a special open view due to the different fields of activity. Since 1991 she has intensively been occupying herself with painting. By encountering the Berlin film-maker and painter Jürgen Böttcher Alias Strawalde, the Vienna painter Gunter Damisch and the artist couple Nancy Spero and Leon Golub at the renowned Summer Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg she received particularly lasting ideas and stimuli. In the meantime the artist, who presently lives in Leipzig, shows her individual and group presentations in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France. The paintings of Ines Hildur appear to be very open, they invite to discuss about them. Perhaps it will be a dialogue between her expectations and those aspects you can find here. You can take up this trace if you want to come closer to the secret behind the obvious things, which works of art always have for us. Andrea Richter-Mahlo I Art Historian I Leipzig.
