Emotions, spontaneity, generosity… Baerbel Ricklefs-Bahr is a painter who deliberately takes risks in her art. She does not plan in advance, but instead relies on spontaneity. This artist requires a certain amount of freedom, generosity, and limitlessness to reach her expectations of art. She wants to shape with colors, and bring contrasts into harmony. Without pressure, she follows her intuition. She works informally, not letting herself get boxed in by rules of style. Her art develops out of the process of painting. A piece begun as an abstract painting may eventually form objects and lead to a theme. She does not wish to restrict the viewer. Instead, she wants to trigger emotions through the colors that are at the foundation of her paintings, through the shapes one might discover, and through exciting, diverse textures. The viewer will find their own access if they engage in the experience.
