    Art Description:

    Curator's inference on this series after a discussion with the artist:

    The painting is a quadriptych representing the sky. The immense size makes the painting a visually immersive experience. A sense of joy of flying over the clouds, and perhaps... just perhaps, the blissful taste of what it feels like to be in heaven.

    This painting consists in 4 canvases, each one 78.75" x 35.5" (200cm x 90 cm).

    Medium Used: Oil, Tempera and Pastels on Canvas

    Skadi Engeln | Germany

    Since 2001, Skadi Engeln’s paintings and prints have dealt with landscape as a symbol of the world. Since 2011, her works of art have been “disturbed” or “interwoven” by traces of human perception and intervention. By means of lines and stripes, mostly vertical, man has integrated himself in her landscapes, both as observer and actor. Skadi’s landscapes have thus been inscribed with rhythm and conflict. Landscape as a synonym for the world reflects underlying realities and truths, encrypts them, makes them show through and discloses them only as approximations. The horizon, often the central focus of Skadi’s artistic work, separates and connects what is above and what is underneath, what is obvious and hidden. It is not her aim to decode what is above and what is underneath. The secret should be kept – and the beauty which perhaps lies in the encrypted, in the mysterious.

    Skadi's works can be found in Berlin, Düsseldorf, Bonn, Hamburg, Munich, Paris, Graz, New York, Molde, and in the homes of other international collectors.
