Elke Jungbluth has aced the craft of vibrant, gestured makings. By use of acrylic and oil, she paints mindfully – considering her dreams of world peace and translating such hopefulness in expressive forms on canvas and linen. The seed of artistry in her possession was first watered during her time in university studying architecture. Throughout the years, Jungbluth has worked in a conceptual manner; continuously nurturing the methods she learned from past to present. Forward thinking is especially pertinent in her art. “With my work I would like to remind everybody that it is important to find the right movement in life,” she says. “To make every hour worth living, and to believe in the dreams we have got and to never give up!” This display of Jungbluth’s humanity exhibits naturally in her paintings with inviting streaks, swirls, and speckles that compliment an equally pleasant palette of luminous yellows, emotive blues, and savory greens.
The tone of her work retains a certain familiarity–both in color and composure–and it is perhaps the abstraction of Claude Monet’s lullful scenes and other musings that best describe Jungbluth’s creations. Retired from architecture, she now works as a full-time artist and continues to paint with colors she considers as gifts from Heaven above.
