Anna-Katharina Rintelen




Anna-Katharina Rintelen is a freelance painter in Freiburg in Breisgau, originally from Basel (Switzerland).
Is it a landscape? A feeling? A music? Associations. Names are not that important so that I recognize the paintings. Dive In. Both in the process, as well as while viewing. In the spaces, in the In-between. In what cannot be expressed in words. In the gaps. Opposites. Resonance, transformation, sensuality, movement, processes, time stretch — ignorance. The dance in everything. Making the invisible visible. With colours. It’s my way to paint pictures.

Painting and drawing became a part of me, since I have discovered that a pen, a brush — immersed in color — leaves a trace. Lack of paper if necessary even in cookbooks. The claim to be photographically exactly, turned into the interest to make visible. Moods, sensations, spaces, the invisible — the in between.
