Eternal Dance

People dance and have always danced – worldwide and at all times! Dance expresses what has always moved us: joy, sadness, love or gratitude. The body is the most important instrument of the dancers and at the same time the human body is a central, artistic theme for Lea Fuchs. Her paintings draw bright colors and strong contrasts with graphical - expressive elements. The exhibition “Eternal Dance" is a reflection on our over-rationalized society, which leaves little room for the irrational and dance. The exhibition focuses on dancing persons in which Fuchs questions the dominance of the rational and makes the intuition and feelings visible.
 
Artist Statement.
I’m a multidisciplinary artist, best known for high-contrast, strong, vibrant and balanced colorful paintings. Driving creative forces behind my work are Post Impressionism, Pop-Art, Japanese art, a remarkable sense of color and the fascination about the beauty of the things I see and feel every day. I don’t paint objects, but the emotions they produce on me. The mean is color. My aspiration is to create an art of joy, balance, and tranquility. My work should support the mind to calm and relax, something like a soft pillow which provides your head comfort and unfolds positive energy. The paintings are windows to the imagination. In a stressful, frantic world, I strive to create a calming retreat for the soul.
 
“By painting archetypal forms and enigmatic figures, Lea Fuchs explores social factors and gender constructions as a major aspect of the human condition. Her visual world opens the windows of perception of the 21st century person. Joyfully, these windows exist for both her and her viewers alike”.
