Somewhere Blue

Marie Schlederer, 2012

Marie Schlederer’s unusual technique produces engaging and ethereal paintings which are primarily aimed at motivating and inspiring the human spirit - a goal they achieve in refreshing and delightful ways. Through the repeated applications of thin layers of paint, Schlederer imbues her canvases with a sense of movement and depth.

Describing humans as “vibrational beings,” the artist states, “Colour and images affect our emotions, health, energy levels, beliefs and experiences. I want to inspire people to see themselves and the world from a whole new perspective.”

Indeed, Schlederer’s body of work is characterized by its hypnotic use of color and textures as she develops painted surfaces reminiscent of Rothko’s color field paintings. Warm and luminous hues blend seamlessly into one another, as Schlederer visually narrates the energy that she feels “at an emotional level.” Her paintings invite viewers to join a visionary journey into a sensory dimension, guided by their visual, emotional and vibrational responses.
