My work is purely intuitive - conceived from memory or mood, interpreted and expressed on canvas.
Following a dialogue between color and shape my theme slowly emerges.
A willingness to follow my impulses and being open to continuous revision enables me to express my creative imagination.
Mixed Media is the best way for me to realize my goal by embracing experimentation and using myriad materials to achieve a variety of texture. My palette consists mainly of warm colors including Acrylide Yellow, Alizarin Crimson and Paynes Grey. It is my layering technique of numerous washes that lends all the colors a greater sense of depth.
My work is not contentious. It is meant to elicit a “feel good” response in the viewer.
Jutta has been active in the arts since early childhood, starting with jewelry, then pottery and finally Fine Arts. Painting seems to be the right medium to express her need to create resulting in truly unique, evocative, poetic works of art noted for their design and masterful interplay of texture and color.
Ontario’s Mohawk College, The Dundas Valley School of Art, Vancouver’s Emily Carr Institute, Malespina Printmaking Studio and the Atlin School of Art were instrumental in providing the tools for achieving those goals.
Jutta holds the Signature Status with Federation of Canadian Artists where she is frequently invited to serve as a juror. She is also an elected member of another respected arts organization – Society of Canadian Artists.
Jutta’s art can be found in private and corporate collections in Europe and North America.
