IntroductionPainting a Story of Light and Color
The subjects of Andrea Damp's paintings are often light-footed, springy, dreamy, playful children, excitedly frolicking in summer adventure. Fascinated by their sometimes tropical-seeming surroundings, they seek to discover new plants and courageously pioneer a trail through the lush, enthralling vegetation.
Her paintings capture the wonderful adventure of nature through a light-drenched atmosphere curiously immersed with paradisiacal shapes and colors. The colors drip from the canvas in warm sunlight as if after a quick, refreshing rainstorm. Situations are created where dreams can become reality: Flying swings are left in a woodsy glade, inviting the viewer to climb aboard.
With a wonderful lightness, Andrea Damp expands on the imagery that reminds us of memories of our ideal childhood paradise, awakening a longing for happiness, carefree joy, and an anticipated moment of surprise.
She spent her own childhood in a small fishing village on the Baltic See island of Rügen, which she remembers as carefree and connected to nature. This may be why she succeeds in creating an atmosphere of images shimmering in memory, immediately enchanting the viewer.
The student of the master Hans-Jürgen Diehl in Berlin has received many fellowships and been exhibited in multiple international galleries, astonishing viewers with colorful paintings in both small and large formats. One of her works is included in the collection of Sidney Picasso in Paris.
