Her work is abstract, observing a strong presence of her energy. She plays with
textures and materials that, combined with her spatula and fingers, achieve a vibrant
balance between chaos and control.
Cornelia seeks to achieve in the viewers, a journey of endless perceptions that not
only reveal new details when observing her work carefully, but also soak them in the
harmonious flow that characterizes them.
“I realized that becoming an acrylic artist and creating abstract paintings allowed me
to not focus on what I saw, but how I felt and the energy that came with that. For a
short period of time, I got to let go of my need for control, took risks, and lost myself
in the process.
It’s so relaxing for me to put my different emotions on canvas with strong colors in a
harmonious flow. I prefer working with acrylic colors, sand and structure paste in an
abstract style. I love to work with pastel chalks additionally to give the painting some
more depth and instead of my brushes I use my palette knife and my fingers most of
Ultimately, my painting process is like finding the right balance between chaos and
control. I want to take the viewers of my painting on a journey where they always find
new details how longer the take a look on my art and feel the harmonious flow.
Creating art means working up emotions and seeing new things arise.
After 19 years in my setting job I determined that there had to be something more in
life and so I want to put more energy in what I love and want to force my artist career.
Being or becoming an artist has never been a question, it just happened.
For me it’s a pleasure when people like my paintings and I can make them satisfied.”
