Marita Katharina Dymny

Spontaneity and intuition are the drive and expression of the painterly compositions of Marita Katharina Dymny. She develops her very own artistic liveliness: skilled in the representational as well as the abstract, her technique of acrylic paints with natural materials such as palm fibres and grated stones in occasional combination with gold leaf invites her to deepen. Beyond pure aesthetics, this multi-layered materiality methaphorically conveys the artist's energetic connection to nature. Her works reflect the infinite cycle of nature and life in time and space.

Marita Dymny: Symbolic Abstraction and Material Composition

"Spontaneity and intuition are the drive and expression of Marita Dymny's painterly compositions. "Painting and designing is a great inner need for me, which I combine with freedom, life, meditation, joy and individuality", emphasizes the artist from Niederkassel-Rheidt with a second residence in Alicante/Spain.

Marita Dymny develops her very own artistic liveliness: skilled in figurative as well as abstract art, her mixed technique of acrylic colours and natural materials - such as vegetable fibres and crushed stones in occasional combination with gold leaf - invites the viewer to deepen her knowledge. Beyond pure aesthetics, this multi-layered materiality metaphorically conveys the artist's energetic connection to nature, to whose treasures she wants to refer in the sense of upcycling in Art.

The circle - symbolic universal symbol of all cultures and epochs - is thus not accidentally at the centre of Marita Dymny's group of works, but can be understood as the innermost core of her symbolic abstraction and material composition. In the geometric form without beginning and end, the artist visualizes the infinite course of nature and life in time and space. Motif and material find each other in a subtle level of meaning.

Since 2002, Marita Dymny has regularly shown her works at solo and group exhibitions in Germany and Spain".

I cultivate artistic exchange through active memberships: KUNSTFORUM´99 Rheinbach, "Kunstgeflecht" Neunkirchen-Seelscheidt, "Asociacion de Artistas de Altea" , Altea (area Alicante, Spain).

In my paintings colour and materiality enter into an aesthetic and energetic-metaphoric connection, reflecting the infinite course of nature and life in time and space.
