ABOUT

Marion Pilz

In my artistic work, I often find my inspiration in the immediate, but also in the socio-political environment. In contrast to other image content, my subject is permanent. This is the human being in its entirety or as a portrait. As part of nature, in a concrete situation or their interaction.  The works are not just about depicting a person, but about breaking habits and creating contradictions. I play with the abstraction and the figurative, it’s not about pure depiction. For example, I paint larger than life or work out individual body parts. As an expression of human qualities, the works can often function in interaction with nature, in which the figures seek an inner location in our diverse world. A mysterious atmosphere is created with their deliberately strong colors and the strong contrasts of light and shadow, giving the viewer space to discover the picture or themselves. Transparent areas next to opaque areas and impasto or brightly glaring areas create a colour-differentiated play between spatiality and area.

My work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Germany, France, Poland and Switzerland. In addition, many of the works are also in private collections. The artistic focus of the freelance work lies in oil painting, drawing and printmaking.

“Art reflects, confronts and amuses. It never floats in a vacuum, but arises in a social and cultural environment.” (Marion Pilz)
