Something about you
I’m an artist, based in Germany. I studied art at the academies in Münster and Düsseldorf. Together with friends I used to organize several alternative spaces and art projects. In Vienna for example, my friend and I ran a project space in our own living room. We invited many artists to realize various exhibitions there – it was such a great time! The last few years I explored the art scene in Cologne, before I finally moved back to Münster.
Where do you get your artistic input from?
My inspiration is what I see in everyday life. Although the original ideas for the paintings are triggered by the form and construction of everyday objects, the final shape on the canvas can not definitely be realized as a specific subject.
Your preferred working materials?
Mostly I produce images on paper or canvas. These can be paintings, collages, prints or photographs. Although I prefer working on flat material, I almost always deal with the topic of three-dimensionality and the tension between flatness and volume.
What do you aim to achieve?
I’m questioning and educating viewing habits. My paintings awaken diverse associations but it’s hard to find concluding terms for the forms shown. They are in a floating state between image and imagination. Lastly it’s not possible to look at the paintings to the end.
Your guiding principle?
Keep it simple and focus on what matters. Don’t let yourself be overwhelmed – Confucius
Move and the way will open.
Daniela Löbbert ★ Artist resume
I came to art via a detour through graphic design. As an artist, I don’t work functionally. I am interested in an independent search for imagery – in finding out how imagination and sense arise from certain constitutions of form, color and relations to real surroundings.
Thank you very much, Daniela.
