“Freedom has always been at the core of my artistic practice, allowing myself to let go of preconceived ideas letting the process itself guide the way of the artwork. In-between refers to the unknown space where the brushstrokes are born, where words can’t do it justice and an unexplainable inner drive takes over. It’s where the creative powers live and the freedom to express freely leads to art in its own right.
From that space in-between, a stream of colourful pigments has evolved into a world of abstract landscapes, journeys on red boats and blue hills where you can go for a wonder.”
Largely inspired by abstract expressionist movement, Backhausen has developed her own unique style of abstracts over her evolving art career. In more recent years, after moving to the South Coast of NSW, her paintings suggest a reference to the landscape. Referring to them as ‘subconscious abstract landscapes’ Backhausen draws reference to her process-driven approach to painting. Furthermore, her interest in psychology and human behaviour continues to inspire the curious and free exploration of the visual voice of the subconscious.
Please join Gitte to celebrate the world in-between and the joy of approaching the unknown with curiosity and wonder. Official launch Saturday 8th June 2-4pm. All welcome.
