STEFANIA JANTOURIS AUTERING


 

Artist Statement

 

My paintings have a long journey...

It begins slowly. Thoughts come and go and little by little they begin to form. Into layers, lines, circles, colours and shapes. Everything that moves me flows into them. Finally it appears in front of me, a new picture, a new creation that was never planned that way. Something special, something personal. A unique feeling of happiness and a special calm fulfils me. So long until it starts afresh.

 

About me

 

I am a German artist based in Munich. I was born in 1970 with Greek roots and an infinite amount of creativity. Art was always present in my mind, however with little time or courage to apply myself to it. More than 16 years ago I have decided to do something with my creativity. Through courses and seminars, I learnt various art techniques. Generally though, I just began and wanted to see what evolves. The respective phases are very different. The only things that nearly always repeat themselves are the structures in my pictures. I love to try out new ideas over and over again. Many artists follow a specific strategy. That is not what I do. Deliberately there is no constant and therefore I always need to reinvent myself again.

I have spent 6 years abroad with my family. We lived in The Hague, Holland and in Tokyo, Japan. The museums and exhibitions I visited there fascinated me. You can see that my most recent work had been influenced by the culture and beauty of these countries. 

My “phases” have titles, however not my pictures. I do not wish to influence the observer’s perception. Therefore the pictures only have numbers as titles. Only if they are purchased, I name them by the purchaser’s first name. Whatever he or she sees, is personal and stays that way.
