  • Gesa Reuter
    Style: Abstract
  • Abstract landscape artist Gesa Reuter

    Fascinated by the colours and light, Gesa Reuter has always felt a close connection to the elements of water, wind, air, and the northern skies. She tells me they give her a feeling of strength and power. Gesa has been an abstract landscape artist since 1996 and has professionalized her work since 2016.

    Inspired by Mark Rothko, Gesa’s colours are usually applied in many fluid layers with mixed media. The many layers forming the painting, are similar to life itself. Reuter: “Each layer of experiences, adds depth to our personality. Good or bad, light or shadow. Most of my abstract landscapes are connected to my inner feelings and emotions, along with landscapes I’ve experienced. Sometimes there are bright blue worlds, sometimes many grey shades. Regardless, you will find a trace of light in all my paintings., as that means hope and future to me.”

    Recognition

    Gesa has received several prizes and nominations throughout the years. To name a few: she was the winner of the Baltic Sea Scholarship, Verein für Meerkultur e.V. by Kunsthaus Stove in Germany (2018) and she has been nominated for the Sofia Paper Art Fest Prize, Amateras Foundation, Sofia, Bulgaria in both 2017 and 2019.

    Being born in the north of Germany, I have always felt a close connection to the elements, like water, wind, air and the northern skies. Particularly the colours and light keep fascinating me and give me strength and power. I have been a semi-abstract landscape painter since 1996. Over the last couple of years, I have started to professionalize my work.

    Inspired by the works of Mark Rothko, I have recently started painting with watercolours and gouache. Painting in thin layers gives a special lightness and airiness to my work that I enjoy very much.

    Changing between works on paper and works on canvas allow me to explore the chances and possibilities that lie in letting the water do the painting. Traces, running marks, dripping is wanted and welcome. I can follow the traces left by the water. After the drying process, I will start making the decisions about composition; what is allowed to stay, what must go. This process may take weeks or months, giving me the inner distance needed for those decisions.

    Most of my paintings become abstract, inner landscapes connected to personal feelings and emotions, and landscapes experienced. Sometimes they are bright blue worlds, sometimes they contain shades of grey. But there is always light. Light means hope and future; you will find a trace of light in all my paintings.
