Artist in Residence – Grit Sauerborn

“Spaces, surfaces, perspectives, reactions and ideas, discoveries inside and outside, in broken or pure colors, with strict lines facing diffuse transitions. Layer by layer, playing and thinking spaces are created.

I draw and make collages to finally transfer what I found to the canvas.
I find my inspiration in harbors and squares lying on the water.
Comprehensive picture series’ are created.

Works are held in Japan, Lithuania, Denmark and China, and these experiences have shaped my content and way of working. In Iceland, I have discovered working on small paper sculptures, which is another step and a good way for me to tell new stories.”
